If we are heading in the direction of web interfaces, I think we should 
look at XAML or XUL or something similar.  From what I can tell, they 
will be adding silverlight support to mono, so using XAML will be 
possible.  This also separates the code for functionality from the 
interface and can allow skinning of the entire application interface 

This will abstract you from every widget set.  Each action could be 
exported and called from the UI without needing to worry about all 

At least, that's my take on it currently.
