And I thought these "constraints" were implicit these days =) And what
comes to the PARC stuff, I must admit I believe they've made good
inventions - only implementation wasn't done computers of present in

What I mean with "advanced UI components" is some stuff that would
bring gzz even with "PARC GUIs". The first thing is some way to run
actions (ie something like menus): a small I-raster that is
easily accessible by a key press, showing all the normal commands in a
tree-like structure. 

And IMO it would be much more friendlier towards the user if we had gZZ
check the options the user feeds in - was it really so that you hated
my suggestion that the user could edit a new bindings list anywhere and
then commit it to the system list _after_ the new list has gone through
