Hi Tony, hi Christian,

I've cvs'ed and tried the x11 demo, and I like it, even if it is a bit 
green.

I wonder what your plans are for x11. Do you want to simply make a 1:1 
binding to the X11R6 API, or do you want to explore making an Erlang GUI 
"thing" (module, behaviour,.. what?)?

There has been a thread on erlang.org about a "functional" widget 
library, and I'm not too impressed with gs, I'm stressing its ability. 
Can you share your thoughts & plans with me?

There's been discussions on how to implement a GUI applying the Erlang 
philosophy [1], but not much code has been generated. How can I help 
jumpstart the process?

Pete.
