Two things I noticed recently:

1.  The gump object model is hard to understand at first.  Including 
examples for each entry would certainly help

2.  Perhaps some kind of mechanism to create a hostname.xml file that is 
"nearly right" for personal gumps, so that with minimal editing someone 
could get a personal gumpp up and running.  Contrast, for example, with 
Apache webservers httpd.conf.  Actually, this probably applies to 
project.xml and most of the other gump config files too.
