fortran is just horribly painful for anything but numerical
computation. Certainly fortran 77.

IMO - the right way of writing a UI for fortran is to 
link the fortran together with C code, or better a scripting
language, to do the UI.

I did this a long time ago with Tcl/Tk, and f2c. It should be
much easier/nicer with g77, python, and PyGTK.
