heheh.. it's just a 500 loc little prototype ;-) but I'm sure it  
won't take too much time to make it ready for real apps. I'll do some  
more work on it later today. My current plan is:
   - more action based API. I think I'll start to use  
   - drag & drop (maybe with some nice effects. You know, like the

   - docking
   - animations
   - transparent views
   - eclipse-like views
