Let's get some decent *standard* programmer interface to windowing before
worrying about a standard "look". There's no technical reason that it
should take more than recompiling with a new set of libraries and include
files to switch between Open Look, MOTIF, PM, Mac, Next, and any other
user interface. There's just a lack of co-operation.
