It seems MS agree. IIUC, this is the approach taken in XAML and the next
version of the Windows OS. If this is true, I expect we will see a lot
more about GUI composition in the next few years <g>
I guess further speculation goes way off-topic (and off-list) for Boost,
but it might be worth checking out some of the Longhorn/Avalon information
that has been put on the web since MS PDC last month.
