I think this would be a good Idea. After all Firefox, Thunderbird,
Sungbird, etc are built ontop of XUL/chrome - And most Win-Users are
quite happy with that. It also increases the chance of getting a full
featured GUI within this summer (IB, still lacks quite a few feats).
Besides the framework already brings Skin and Plugin-Support and an
html-renderer/DOM-Support. Another plus is, that it's cross Platform. It
is therefore not only a new GUI for Win, but also for Lin & Mac.
