What kind of widgets you are speaking about?
SVG -based User Interface (Widgets, Window Decorations, etc.) is in my plans, 
but I would like to see capable renderer (available as Open-Source) first.
Xr/Xc, together with libsvg and librxsvg, are very promising technologies, but 
those libs are not ready yet.
