Rodrigo, if you could fwd this to gnome-db I'd appreciate it.  (Stupid
local mail config has issues with the gnome-db-list)

Actually, we're working on that as part of the GNUe project.  Our GNUe
Forms system is a multi UI system that will consist of a run time client
and a form "painter".  The client will read XML based gfd (gnue form
defintion) files and build the UI from that.  The idea is to do away with
as much programming as possible when building data entry screens.  The
idea is to make building data entry/query screens as fast and easy as
possible (read minimal programming :)

The client is under construction now.  The designer will start after the
client is functional.  Until then .gfd files are done by hand or by a
little script Derek worked up.

We've got a ways to go but we're getting there :)

Take Care,
