Thanks Stephen and Alfredo... wxWidgets is looking very interesting indeed! 
I had not heard of it before and I will begin investigating it. Very 
impressive that it achieves the look of the native GUIs for the target 
platform, including Mac OS X which I have always wanted to support.

It certainly serves a different purpose from Wine, but maybe what I was 
looking for was not so much Wine.
