Building Web 2.0 UIs

lima1 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,

Maybe slightly OT, but I've just finished a geeky command line tool written in C. People want GUIs and I don't want to use QT or Gtk, because then I have to provide binaries (because 99 percent of my potential users will give up when ./configure fails). My CGI programming "career" ended more than 4 years ago, so I completely missed this fancy Web 2.0 stuff.

Of course I heard about Catalyst and Rails, but I'm more looking for something "quick & dirty" like a Visual Basic or a Delphi for Webapps. I just want a Menu and a wizard which collects the command line arguments. Any suggestions?

Update: I'll try dojo and GWT.
