Not that I'm aware of.

If the command line is too much for your users then they might like
EASYMENU, which I think I picked up from the EMBL FTP site.  Unfortunately
it's still at 7.0, so you'd have to do a fair amount of work to bring in 
the new 8.1 pieces, however, the core programs are all pretty old, and
they still work ok.  It shouldn't be too hard to modify EASYMENU though -
since it's just a big DCL procedure. 

Also, there's WPI, for those with X11 servers. 

If you want to port the existing WWWtoGCG that should be possible.  I 
looked at it once, and the core of it is in PERL.  Unfortunately, the
version of PERL at that time did not pass diagnostics after it built on
OpenVMS/Alpha, and debugging PERL itself looked like *way* too much work,
so I gave up on WWWtoGCG.
