There are already an readline interface, an emacs interface and an TeXmacs

What are exactly the functionality you would like in a GUI ?

For the purpose of interpreting the answer, I would be very happy if 
someone take time to write scripts that explain the output of PARI functions:

For example for znstar,

  print("Order: ",Z[1]);
  print1("Cyclic factors: ");
  print("\nGenerators: ",Z.gen)

? znstar_explain(znstar(357))
Order: 192
Cyclic factors: Z/48ZxZ/2ZxZ/2Z
Generators: [Mod(173, 357), Mod(239, 357), Mod(118, 357)]
