It's wow to me because Perl doesn't have one that I'm aware of, and
I'd like to see one done in Perl.

What I don't know yet until I look at GWT is whether you have to write
custom Java code just for GWT, or if it supports some sort of generic
transform from "normal" Java GUI code using AWT or similar.

In Perl that would be the difference between something that merely
generates AJAX UI code from some custom Perl code that uses
specialized modules, and something that just translates Perl/Tk UIs
into AJAX UIs with minimal fuss.
