I also agree, I was just talking about the most efficient alternative to
program an acceptable interface. The default values could be overloaded for
subgroups. Some sort of "every widget in this group should have a minimum
of 40x80 pixels & no spacing between the widgets". This is used so
frequently and follows the "container oriented" design pretty well.
