Are you referring to some thing like glade?  If so, why is this 
required and why is it something that needs to be worried about for 
getting erlang up and running with win32 GUI support?  It sounds like 
something that can be worried about and written later on in the design 
process.  Not that you want to design GUI's by hand but certainly it 
isn't something we have to worry about now is it?  Seems like too much 
emphasis is being put on a design environment at this stage.
