I've used GNUe to implement a custom application for a client.  The
application is used daily be dozens of users across Austria registering
and evaluating about 100K data rows a year.

Like any new framework there is a learning curve but with the support of
the GNUe developers it was definitely not that hard to produce working
code in a short time.

I will definitely use GNUe again for adhoc projects and hope to
contribute more.

I think all GNUe needs one larger project to finance a few folks for a
few months to polish some things up and get some integration into a
popular IDE.  The design itself seems very sound and potent as far as
I've been able to look into it.

... i.o.w. I think there is high potential for GNUe it and some sort of
Kickstart project could very well give it the critical mass it needs to
become a very productive project.
