In theory as long as a program has a simple prescription that can be automatically obtained, tkrun can present this to the user in in a GUI. An example are NEMO or CARMA programs that via a specific invocation reveal their keywords and defaults, which programs like tkrun could use to build the GUI. The current version of tkrun however, need to read this prescription from a script as embedded comments in that script.
