Sigh. Qt is top of mind because its OS X flavour has a bug which  
makes Psi almost unusable. Psi project isn't interested in fixing it  
and upstream doesn't seem to care. End result: suckage. Coccinella  
uses Tcl and some x-platform framework and also sucks.

I'm not sure I can name any really satisfactory portable framework  
except, as bob astutely points out, a good web browser.

And Apple has showed no interest in portable development either,  
except a flirtation with Java a while back.
