Comment (by jdreimann):

 From the description this seems to be a way to allow for more modifiable
 widgets, which could also be added or removed at will by the user.

 I believe that any such system should be some way out - it needs a certain
 stability of what the user can expect in each widget, nevermind a
 collection of worthwhile widgets, and a clear upgrade path should the
 dashboard change significantly.

 There are more reasons: Users may dismiss a widget early on because it
 doesn't yet provide the functionality they expect, and not revisit it
 later. To my knowledge evidence suggests that users do not regularly
 assess all available options and rationally decide on which ones to
 choose, which makes this a potentially very complicated system to maintain
 and support for a small proportion of users.

 The ultimate argument I see against this at this time though is that #138
 already provides similar functionality and challenges. If we're committed
 to fixing them, we may as well start there first.
