[UI] Widgets ready

One by one:
1. Probably best to close all uncecessary windows before installing.
2. Not tested on 3.10 or with OmniBrowser yet.
3. Input still follows mouse cursor, though tabbing works if mouse is still
(future enhancement maybe that will change a lot of Morphic code).
4. #modalMorph see point 1.
5. Built on-the fly, just work quickly (I was astonished too).
6. Not sure what you mean about the "ledger" style. For the themes answer
any valid fillstyle (Color, GradientFillStyle etc.)
Hope this helps...

Moniticello seems to have something personal against me (perhaps because I
have never taken the time to figure it out). That didn't go well, but
loading via the filelist seemed to work fine.
I am getting some DNU walkbacks re #topWindow. System windows open prior to
the upgrade are often unwilling to close (though the file list
did??) and some things such as sender/implementors in the IDE will not open.
Zurgle did some similar things IIRC, though I also recall being able to halo
things out of existence there, but am not having luck with that here.
At least in the basic controls example, I am finding the input focus follows
the mouse cursor, and I thought I read that you had addressed that (or is
there more I need to load or configure?). For example, after clicking in
the text entry field, the focus gets stolen by simply mousing over the
disabled text entry or various lists and maybe groups.
I _think_ I have the image set to not do that kind of thing, at least not
any more than usual. Is the behavior expected, or should I grab a new
image? At least closing extant windows starts going bad in #promptForCancel
and PSUIManager>>confirm:. In trying to learn about it, I chose
Implementors of... in the debugger and got what appears to the same basic
problem in #modalMorph.
Semi-rhetorical question: how did you get the task bar previews to work so
quickly? Are they cached, or do you build them on the fly?
I am afraid that I must tear myself away for now. More later.
Dumb question: one of the things I have long liked in Dolphin is the ledger
color backgrounds in their editors. What would be the best place to make a
change that would affect workspaces, code panes of the browsers and
debugger, etc.? I found #textEditorNormalFillStyleFor:, but its complexity
in the soft theme makes me wonder whether its the right thing - nothing
looks like that would be required to render it??
Let's see, it was 20 minutes ago I was saying I needed to stop fiddling
