[Bf-committers] New-User Interface Proposal

while I laud your goals - realize that a complete UI redesign would
include every area that blender supports.  Your proposal shows a UI
for just mesh editing (maybe?) and really isn't complete enough to be
a design doc.

Any significant redesign has major implications - basically all
documentation has to be redone, all video training has to be redone,

That makes a proposal that works on a new UI a bit of a difficult sell.

Also realize that the UI design changes that were made after William
Reynishes proposal took quite a while to be accepted and his design
work was with lots of interaction with the dev team.  You have
basically a couple of weeks to convince the blender dev team that your
design should be implemented.

All of those factors suggest that your proposal has little chance of
success as currently proposed.  However, tools to customize the UI -
which would allow you to rapidly create your proposed UI, would likely
be readily accepted - since it serves the needs of existing artists.
