Pete Mack is on a distinguished road
I wrote exactly one UI widget for Angband--the menu, implemented as the only subclass of Panel. (I also wrote a simple UI event system.) After that I realized that it was a losing battle--I'd do better not to reinvent any more wheels. But it was an useful learning experience, and I did a pretty good job for ~1000 lines of code.

If nothing else, it gave me an idea of what to look for in a toolkit. (The answer is definitely not SDL, GTK or Qt.)
