nah, i just was surprised not to see one  :-)

is it worth it?  recently i've seen some projects that boast about
their "desktop binary" part, and it turns to be a 20-line C file that
just opens a non-network webkit frame and loads an included JS file.
most of the multi-phone-OS frameworks work similarly.

Lua in NaCl with an easy enough DOM interface would be a good way to
package GUI apps written in Lua.  Not so capable as using Qt, but
easier to write for some.
