DesireData's is quite nice, for example.  Make the layout work well,  
make the text and buttons communicate well, provide useful things on  
the pd window, etc.

I'd be very happy with a slightly simpler version DesireData's.  But  
its GPL, so we can't just take it for vanilla without getting  
copyright permission.
