Yeah I know that, and I started to work on a much nicer GUI, but it is very tricky because no real finished widgets library exist so far for rendering OpenGL widgets.
The best I found is Glgooey, but it really lacks a good multiplateform support, i started having some contacts with the guys doing it, but there is still lot of work to do.. You can of course make things go faster if you contribute to Glgooey :)
When this library will be included in stellarium, MANY improvements will be easily done, such as object search, translation to every language (when UTF fonts are working in Glgooey), etc..
