What do you think about something like this:

The way I view it, GUI stuff creation has 3 steps:
- widget creation
- layout
- event binding

a lot of the spaghetti code I produced was due to the fact that I wasn't
disciplined enough to break code into this distinct steps.

regarding the layout language, I would rather learn a few more idioms than
have write AND READ through lot of noise created by methods names and
ALLCAPS parameters.
