just to voice a slightly differnt opinion: 
I worked with FranTk a bit and found it quite easy to handle.
There are some technical problems maybe,
but they do not come from the design but rather from using Tcl/Tk.
The design itself is rather abstract (that's the very intention),
and is not tied to one particular backend.
