I have been looking into doing the same thing with UI/BLL interface as =

There is a series of articles on CodeProject.com from 2002, but the =
author never completed the series as far as I can tell.  I can't grab =
the direct link right now, but take a look there.  His articles are not =
directly related to Gtk#, but they should give you some ideas. =20

His scheme allowed you to create one UI definition, and generate both =
Web Forms and "Windows Forms" interfaces from that template/XML =
configuration file.
