Subject Re: Regarding to drag and drop designer

Hi Adrian,

The library is cool. I would like however to pick your brain on how 
exactly the concepts in brooklyn could be conveyed graphically.

 From my previous experience, this kind of representation occupies much 
more real estate on a screen (vertically at least) than one line in an 
editor that conveys practically the same information. While I totally 
agree that a visual representation is crucial, I am not sure this is the 
right one.

To make it clear, this is not criticism in any way. I hope to encourage 
you and others who've seen orders of magnitude more ways to represent 
things graphically than me to bounce some ideas and come up with 
something great.
