Then my I suggest you take a look at the LCL-fpGUI widgetset. It has all 
the basic components working (except for TLabel), and many of the other 
Windows like API's and dialogs etc. It desperately needs a maintainer - 
I don't have the time, and rather spend my time improving fpGUI 
directly, than maintain a LCL widgetset.

Either way, it would save you a ton of time and effort - plus it will 
check off some of your requirements like no large toolkit dependency 
hell like GTK3 and QT introduces. Plus, everything is implemented in 
Object Pascal.... LCL and fpGUI Toolkit.
