BTW, the choice of the gfx toolkit will be critical.

Unfortunately, the C toolkits over there are turning very bad:
GTK+ and the EFL do depend on harfbuzz for their font layout
computation which is an *really* ugly c++ object-oriented
brainfuckage (uglier that the glib SDK dependencies!). I did a C
port of harfbuzz (drop-in replacement), but for basic text layout
(roman style). Then to keep your GUI suckless, you should package
a version of a toolkit to allow trashing harfbuzz, or avoid crazy
SDK deps... This is unfortunately more work.
