has there been any discussion on using XUL? (http://www.xulplanet.com/), I
don't know that much about it, but if theres a good clean (playform
independant) way to embed SVG or OpenGL, it seems to me like it would be the
perfect way to specify interfaces for plugins, allawing you to do all sorts
of funky things (and of course, you can always use a rdf datasource if
you're just doing a simple plugin and want to leave layout, etc to the
parent app). Also note that with the XUL engine in firebird, its now pretty
damm speedy.
