Of course it can be done, VST is just a simple header file.
But there is no reason to, as almost no programs supports VST,
and almost none free non-gui/platform-independent-gui open source vst 
plugins exist.

Additional, theres the political reasons. VST is closely tied
to Steinberg, and its license is stupid (and possibly evil as well).

So descent open-source people rather use ladspa or dssi instead.

(Why hasn't anyone made a ladspa plugin with a GUI by the way? Its
really simple just spawning of a gui process program.)
