[Alex wanting to build beautiful and open UI code]

Maybe I've been doing this programming thing too long, but I don't think
I've ever seen useable UI code that was beautiful and easy to
understand.

The programming infrastructure just isn't there atm, to help you better
handle the maze of event handling that makes up a modern UI app. (i.e.
the view portion of MVC)

This is especially true when trying to make updates to your UI code.
More often than not if it's bit rotted too long, then you'll always
forget a separate event sequence change that needed an identical change.

UI programming cynic,
Bill
