I deleted all the code I wrote at Sun but there was a great toolkit,
I want to say xview? Can't remember the name right now but it was
a really pleasant API, it was
interface(key, val, key, val, key, val, ... END);
and all interfaces took that and all had sensible defaults. So you passed
in stuff to change the defaults.
I wrote a bunch of GUI tools for what was the system before BitKeeper in
that toolkit. As a non-gui person, I found it really pleasant.
