Hi all,

This week, I managed to get all of the basic UI drawing work done that I had
planned to have done for this first stage. I've also started implementing
some operators - basic selection tools, and channel-operations such as
handling mouse clicks and specialised selection functions - though there are
still a few more important operators (notably transforms) needed for a bare
level of functionality for user-evaluation of the basic concepts - and fixed
a few ugly bugs which I noticed last week.

Also implemented, were a few key tools which provide functionality central
to my concepts of how NLA should be implemented to be as simple as possible.
These were:
- 'push down' active Action onto the NLA stack as a new strip in the last
NLA track with sufficient space
- setting actions referenced by strips as the 'active' action, facilitating
'tweaking' of those Actions at the keyframe level, allowing previously
created strips to be modified

In the next week (or so), I'll be looking at implementing some of the
following things:
- Transforms for strips (while high-ish priority, can leave this target for
later, as setting up buttons/RNA will allow some tweaking of this too, just
a bit clumsier)
- Wrapping NLA data in RNA (needed for next step, and also for some
evaluation code)
- Setting up temporary code for buttons to set various settings on strips
for testing
- Improvements of patchy areas of the implemented functionality thus far
