I'll second this opinion. I wrote a GUI using TkGofer and it was most
concise and reliable. Far more so than similar things I have written in
Tcl and in Python. The type checking proved very useful -- I had no
problems with TkGofer's strong static typing (ie. it never got in the
way). It's just a pity that TkGofer is hooked up to Tk (I can't stand
the eventloop model of GUIs -- give me threaded GUIs any day!).
