Someone working on this could answer this better.  I believe things are further
along in the tuhopuu tree, which can be found here: 


If your intersted in helping with it you probably want to go with that
until its worked back into the main tree.  Tuhopuu is the experimental tree
and is where most of the "work" gets done with new features, ideas etc...

Depends on what exactly your looking for.
There is ghost: http://projects.blender.org/projects/ghost/
Which does low level stuff  It does not have the higher level widget
types that blender has, but it contains the basic building blocks for blender.
There are some sample programs that come with it, and you would probably
want to look at the blender source to see how it does things.
