I've experimented with a similar system in the past. I feel that its
biggest weakness is the lack of priorities. For example, I always want my
multi-line text edit box, which benefits from additional width and height,
to receive priority over my buttons, which don't. However, the buttons
ultimately have no maximum size, and I want all of the buttons in a column
to have the same width.
