C++ is dangerously complex. And I think the previous waves have made clear
that the complexity is the problem of the project already.

Don't shop languages as the silver bullet to solve the problem, you always
be disappointed if you go that way.

Personally I would start to make some choices, and start focussing the
project. What is absolutely necessary (properties that set the program from
its competitors), and what is only a nice to have? 

Then focus on getting the necessities working first, before you start
messing with designing your own widget sets (no offense Pavel)
