Couldn't this feature just be added ti ViPyl?  I don't thing layout
management should be that hard.  I agree with the fact the layout
management is a 'much' better solution then setting specific x, y, width,
height properties.  Plus the application runs much better on varying
resolutions.  One think I don't like about KDE (1.X anyway), is that the
dialogs seem to be coded without layout management.  I hope they fixed it
in 2.0.  Anyways, I still think it can be done to ViPyl.
