DWT in Google Summer of Code?

+1 to that. But I think using using SWT as inspiration for a GUI 
library may not be the best possible choice. I would like to see 
an API which uses D well. Small things like using properties 
instead of getters and setters come to the mind first. I haven't 
looked at the DWT source code but I suspect it may suffer from 
some of the same short comings as SWT.

I have been looking for a good cross platform GUI library but the 
choices available so far (Qt, wxWidgets, GTK+) all come from the 
C++ world (where garbage collection is almost absent) thus 
entangling memory management issues with the GUI API and its 
architecture in general.

I would love to hear some recommendations on terse and powerful 
GUI libraries even if they are not cross platform. I'd seriously 
consider contributing to such a project.
