I don't agree that UI is "eye candy". I think it is an often overlooked 
part of program creation.. And ultimately, it is a huge part of any 
program.. The issue, and the point I was trying to get at, is that UI 
requires very concerted development, which just happens to be easy to 
bypass in favour of pre-existing widgets..

In terms of UI genius, though, I love mythprogfind's UI system.. Much like 
what Nathan is proposing in terms of the "layered" selection system.
