We agree, then :-). My plans for the gui library (henceforth just gui)
are these:

1. Fix things so that free widgets are possible. I would still love to
hear some suggestions on how to select the backend in situations where
multiple backends are available. It would be nice to have a text-mode
backend available on all platforms.

2. Implement the missing widgets I outlined earlier.

As far as having a drawing widget is concerned, I'm now convinced that
this is best done in a seperate library. I'll look at doing that once
I've finished with gui.

Gui is now hosted on sourceforge: A
version implementing the newer syntax (i.e. dots) is available for
download. If anybody would like to help me out, particularly with the
porting and build processes, I'd be most grateful :-).
