It'd be great if you could use Blenders interface code to do that. I don't
feel too happy about GTK as an added dependency. I'm not sure about how the
property window looks like, could you give more info? (Perhaps screenshots
of property windows of existing plugins).

For now, lets go with the first way - we can always decide to do it
otherwise. Just make sure you have some good defaults (ie. in case of
Quicktime SDK, we have lib/windows/QTDevWin as the default path in scons.
perhaps lib/windows/Gecko can be a good default for this.

On the other points I can't comment yet (too little knowledge), but I must
say I'm very happy to see renewed effort in this part of the code.
