the various options?

Assuming that you can get away with simple form-based setup like "select 
input file", "select output file", some checkboxes, text fields and so 
on...  Looking at e.g. kdialog might be one place to start.  Or, the 
FreeTUIT kit might be nearly ready for general consumption in that
