I like the idea of users setting up parent/child stuff with the mouse, 
as well as Key Shortcuts. since the key shortcuts allow you to set up 
many children at once.

Im lookin at adding spline curves to the oops view- I think it would 
make links more obvious (as to where there going from/to)
Any comments on this?
