Rats, you beat me to it :-)
I was waiting a few days to see what the list thought of UI
etc and if they came up with something I had not thought
of in the passed.
But what I was going to say is that the problem is really an
Interface Interaction problem. What is need is a set of abstract
classes / template definitions that can be used to build Interface
systems with. These can then be specialized for Hosted,
and non-Hosted systems to interact with the OS, UI
or other event generating modules in a transparent way.
