Well, I guess it depends on your viewpoint. I find "pack" flexible 
because it allows me to think in terms of top, bottom, right, and left 
in terms of arranging UI elements--it's an elegant way to do it in my 
view. I tend to use "grid" if I have, say, a window with several 
preference items: a label, an entry field, and a button, all arranged in 
rows. "grid" is better for stuff like that, I agree.

See http://www.codebykevin.com/blosxom/business/phynchronicity-new.png: 
this is an application I develop. The layout is all handled by "pack" 
and paned windows. Where you you use "grid" in a layout like this?
