I am writen a plugin gui 'toolkit' for exactly this purpose. So far I
have a full mouse and keyboard event system working and a 'minimal'
widget set. I works on win32 and x11 so far and has no dependencies
whatsoever (apart from xlib and dgi32).
If you are interested you can check it out:
git clone http://git.drumgizmo.org/drumgizmo.git
the gui code is located in the plugingui folder.

It is by no means stable and currently work-in-progress but I suspect it
will be stable within a couple of months.
Some kind of mac support is panned down the road, but it is probably
more than a year away.

Kind regards
