Ah, good old Delphi.  Those _were_ good days. Apparently the
executables produced by Lazarus are somewhat enormous.

You know, I like screen designers but wonder if they're not an
evolutionary dead end.  I like the idea of using the shape of the
data, plus hints, to automatically lay out forms - 'declarative' GUI
building.  (This may be a cognitive style thing, of course. Many do
prefer to lay out forms manually.)

Web-style programming (separation of markup, style and functionality)
has a lot to offer to the traditional desktop GUI development model.
It allows designers and programmers to collaborate more effectively.
