I think it would be relatively easy to do the standard S.W.F widgets.
(Form, Button, DataGrid, ...)

The problem is you can create other widgets and/or modify the standard ones.
This will require the emulation of half of the windows GUI, I think.

So what could be done (perhaps), would be doing the standard widgets, by
wrapping them to the gtk+ widgets.
This would make multi-platform GUI possible, but only in a very limited way.

And please correct me if I'm wrong.
