Heh... Dead on ;)

Node that both in this case (and others) I'm mainly interested in
trying things out without brusing them off immediately. Several of the
more "magical things" we've played with in Anygui have been scrapped.
(It's not really that magical at the moment, IMO.)

Yes, I'm easily charmed by shiny objects, but it's usually not too
hard to talk me out of it :)

I guess I'll just have a look at the prototype (of the C level
observable) to satisfy my curiosity.
