It seems we're in agreement then. :) I wasn't challenging your idea, I was
just wondering what the benefits to it were. I think BPython is better
because it has control structures. I'm sorry if I came off snippy.

Ton wants limited gui control exposed, so that the interface remains clean.
So the big questions that remain in my head are the resizing issues I spoke
of earlier. How do you go about placing n number of buttons inside a panel
and do it cleanly? Do we allow limited formatting capablities like rows and
columns, grouping things into panels?
