I don't believe there were any plans to implement graphical interfaces in
BGT due to the tricky nature of figuring out control sizes, icons and the
like. It is for this reason that I wrote an extensive class on what I have
called an audio form, which basically simulates the functionality of a
graphical interface without having to worry about such issues. It simply
uses a so-called control type flag which tells the form whether the given
control is a button, a text box, a checkbox, a status bar, a progress bar
etc and acts depending on that flag, if that makes sense. It does use Sapi
for the audio output, but that's only to be expected when you don't know
what text will appear on the controls.
Naturally, you can also check the status of controls, for example the
is_pressed method checks whether a button is pressed so you can act
accordingly. You also have get_text, is_checked etc to figure out the
contents of various controls.

I would like to see eventually a physical game UI such as buttons, boxes
the like. It would be useful for us who want to create configuration
dialogues, or possible some secondary kind of apps.
