I see, my simple approach is much like the one Max uses, where there is no
client/server architecture. It's all self-consistent and bound to one
Maybe there is some cross-platform GUI library which support the
client/server approach? (there are some indications that wxWindows does)
I honestly admit that i don't like TCL/TK at all.
