It would help all if you made some of the "familiar feeling widgits" in
Squeak. Also, it would be good if you mentioned what makes a UI "modern and
well honed", since we aspire to have things be at their best when Squeak
turns the corner. Eventually this will help you by giving you a better
system than FaceSpan. Squeak is actually an authoring system for all levels
of stuff, and you should be able to make what ever you need ...
