While checking on the particle plugin, I noticed the interface they use:


It's a typical example of an 'easy to code' interface, which is of  
course an important feature for plug-ins. It simply visualizes a sort  
of hierarchical list of properties, which seems to allow to be  
dynamically generated as well:


Most obvious is, that in Blender we don't have the 'hierarchical list'  
or 'tree' concept for interfaces. it's a pretty common interface  
element, which can be found in most (Windows) 3d packages I think.
 From a coders perspective, this will quickly allow to construct  
interfaces. For users and GUI designers it might be less attractive;  
especially because of allowing coders to make a GUI! ;-)

Nevertheless, interesting to look at...
