It's probably still worth checking out. 

Worst case after lots of work the UI library forces some crappy subset of
Qt/GTK/text on all the config tools (Inherently such a library will always
limit what you can do with the UI) + extra bloat (since you'll still need
GTK or Qt)

Best case current functionality is kept (for little conversion work), people
get their native UI look and we get a kick-ass text UI as a bonus.

Reality? Something in the middle, I'm sure ;)
