Aha! You've been lurking and I caught you with my bait! Awahahahahaha!!

Seriously, I know where you are going with this, and I have continued to
consider you proposal that the GUI components in Antidote provide a
default ctor so that they can be used in a GUI builder. Either Stephan
or Conor (I forget who) correctly pointed out to me that providing a
default ctor and then an init() method that accepts the data required
for starup shouldn't be any big deal, albeit an extra step required when
using the class by hand.

My comments in my previous mail (above) were relative to the data model,
in  which I strongly value a JavaBeans compliant implementation. Lest I
be labeled a hypocrite, I will be happy to make the according changes to
the Antidote GUI components if you are still in favor of them. However,
I still stand firmly in my position against any VAJ code (generated or
otherwise) in Antidote.

Let me know!
