Well, not a groan, but... :)
Take a look at TrollTech's Qt library. It uses native Xlib on X Window
, and native windows libs (but not MFC) on Windows platforms. Said to
be "compatible" between the two platforms, and it has a "clickedy" gui
designer. The windows version is not free [1], but the un*x versions are
available under QPL or GPL. If the gui client were written in Qt, it
would work on both un*x and windows with the same codebase. I think
it's a huge win. Thoughts?

[1]: The libs are actually free for windows as well, you only need to
pay for the build environment, so it's possible to distribute the win
client in binary for free.

ps: in my opinion, VB is only an option for prototyping...
