I'd rather have an XUL one than a JS one. :p

Did I mention I want to drop mysql 3 support?

I've actually no idea if one can. This lib is not Open Source and 
therefor not usable by us anyway.

I would not mind to have a form builder in JS, as long as it degrades 
gracefully. Even if it didn't I'd be ok with it as long as it is a 
contributed thing. Actually, I would even like to have a form builder 
that isn't part of Drupal at all. You only build forms very rarely, I'd 
prefer to build it outside of Drupal and then upload the result. No need 
to parse a form builder for each page request.
