Randy's code did what Karen is talking about - you could switch  
between VisualWorks (VW) text and (Randy's) graphics mode browsers,  
move syntactic units around, etc., preventing syntax mistakes and so  
on. It was demoed at obne of the OOPSLA conferences.

I can't remember the details now but I will try to find the paper and  
the code and make it available here. But it has been a long time ...
