You might want to reuse parts of the skins module, which is already able to:
 - read the description of a skin from a XML file
 - draw controls using low-level functions
 - listen to events and react to them

A few months ago, Quovodis proposed to add a new type of window in the
XML file, for windows that could be embedded in a firefox or activex
plugin (another similar option is a mode in which all the skin windows
are loaded in a plugin instead of "normal" windows). It would be very
powerful, but noone had time to do this...

In case you decide to explore this way of action, I can help you to
understand the skins module.
