I am wanting to write a gui frontend to pkg_cutleaves. I see that it is just a simple perl script so, it would be quite simple to just put a gtk frontend on it and call it a day. However, I am starting to write a good amount of code in java and was wondering what others think about java as the de-facto gui standard on the BSD desktop.

Python started me on a path of cross platform coding and I found that java also makes this task quite simple. Along with it's nice feature set and significant speed improvements since 1.5 I am starting to see it as a great language for most everything. Is it just me or does BSD and java make sense? Basically, before I get started writing a program that I hope is used by more than me does it make more sense to write this program and future programs in java or gtk/python/perl/c/whatever?
