Then take a look at PLT Scheme <URL:> and
the MrEd toolkit <URL:> which
is used to build the DrScheme IDE:

	MrEd embeds MzScheme and extends it with a graphical user
	interface (GUI) toolbox. GUI applications written with MrEd
	run without modification under Windows, Mac OS, and Unix/X.

MrEd is based on wxWindows, and then extends it with a bunch of classes
built on MzScheme's single-inheritance object system. The MrEd Graphical
Toolbox Manual <URL:>
has all the details.

PLT Scheme is GPL'd, though...
