Being stuck with a lot of Kylix code, I found it quite heavy a migration 
toward fpGUI (or MSEGUI). VCL and CLX are contiguous enough to allow a 
migration without too much hassle.
Luckily even if the Kylix development is not possible on modern 
platform, it's still possible with a few kludges to run Kylix 
applications. One only needs to keep alive legacy platforms for development.

Now I'm looking forward with interest to CustomDrawn, which should fit 
much better my needs, and I'm also trying to contribute, bounded by the 
limits of my available time (and capabilities).
