Hmm.  in hindsight:
-- I forgot about this/didn't consider it.
-- I needed to interface to existing gnome/C programs
-- didn't want to use other languages (due to above)
-- dwi requires 'zero' programming; its a description language unto
   itself: its 'just' xml.  It 'just' describes how to link sql table
   fields to widgets.
