I don't think there is a mentor for this task yet, but I may be
interested in doing such. As usual with this project, I expect
cross-platform portability will be a fair concern. Ideally we want any
GUI to work on as many different platforms as possible. Maybe less of
a concern to many but I think it would be nice if it used native
widgets. Please feel free to make a list of suggestions here or come
into our IRC channels (#ffmpeg or #ffmpeg-devel on irc.freenode.net)
to discuss ideas.

I've just added you on Jabber as I will be interested in the features
and usability of any developed UI, but I think people on the list who
are concerned about a UI would want to suggest features and ground
rules for toolkits to use, etc.
