That is pretty much correct. This part consists of a lot of
ad-hoc code that 'just works' somehow. And as I understood the
idea behind gideon, it should be replaced by something better
step by step.

This is exactly the way to go. And I have the feeling that we
can put in the solution to our puzzle without affecting most
of the rest of the system. For example, I had a look at the
QextMDI stuff before, but I guess I don't know enough about
it. But I guess you can get it to work in gideon in a week or
two. And all that time, others can go on improving the Java
debugger, the editor, the project management. I guess that is
what I liked about the architecture.

So I think we are heading into the right direction.
