When winecfg was originally proposed I wanted to do it in GTK, and whinged
loudly when Alexandre said it had to be done using Win32 to keep
dependencies small. I guess his reasoning hasn't changed, so, for GUIs
you'd have to do it using Win32 and C :(

Of course if you aren't bothered about it becoming official you can do it
however you like ...
