Unfortunately interfaces also implements non-GUI stuff like TTimer and 
inter-Thread messages, that indeed could be useful in (fast) CGI 

There _could_ be implementations of "interfaces" (WidgetTypes) that 
provide this (I did some work on that with limited success some time ago).

AFAIK, the FPGUI WidgetType is on a more promising way to help here, 
that I was.

Moreover there _could_ be a fast-CGI Widget Type that in fact implements 
a remote GUI via http (enhancing or similar to ExtPascal), but I suppose 
a lot of work would be needed to create this even with very limited 
compatibility with the existing full blown WidgetTypes for Linux, 
Windows, and Mac.
