I was thinking of language features, that is, keywords recognised by the
compiler that specifically dealt with User Interface programming.

I can also add the Progress 4GL with that list too, which is a language
that I still use.

TechnoZeus  be reasonable!

Which one of the dozen or so different GUI interface libraries should be 
included in the D language?
http://www.wikiservice.at/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?AvailableGuiLibraries

If any one of them should be "chosen" the others GUI authors would loose 
drive and enthusiasm, development would halt while now we have a healthy 
competition that benefits all.

My choice would be DFL that is on the verge of becoming 1.0. Harmonia is a 
very interesting project with a revolutionary concept. Enjoy!

He didn't want a library, he wanted the language changed...

But didn't elaborate too much on the concept before he left.
