I believe someone here was working on Color and Windowing. Was 
previously called Divisualization on GitHub. I think GUI is one 
of the pressing needs for a killer App and enterprise 
adoption...native apps.

Tilix is said to be the D killer app due to GUI. D need a GUI. 
Whatever we can scrap off DlangUI and the existing ones to build 
a modern GUI toolkit is worth it.

GTK is great as a GUI toolkit especially with the use of CSS for 
styling, UI markup/xml/json-like support and modern smart 
layouts. Very basic and flexible to powerful theming with CSS. 
Only issue is its not cross platform by design...and its C.
