Then it should be a GSoC task to search for it. Surely the existing
(or some of them) are not completely useless, but some are not
any longer, some are in an pre-alpha stadium, some work fine but have
defects in their concept so that extending/writing own widgets is very

If there were a pygame.gui module, it would be developed faster,
programmers could help with posting new widgets they made and
bugs and ideas could be handled faster.

If you think it's too much work, call a vote, take the best pygame
put it into pygame and start helping to develop and improve it. But I
think most of the work will be to think about an easy but powerful
concept for a game gui. The implementing part should be less work
and less difficult.
