Guis widget server

Guis widget server is a Gtk2 widget server. It listens on pipes for widget requests (in the Python or Ruby (or Slang, etc.) scripting languages), and emit replies or events in textual lines (e.g. Lispy, XML or plain token syntax). It is useful for programs (in particular setuid programs) and scripts that don't or can't link the Gtk2 libraries and need to delegate the user interface to another process.
