The options panes in the GIS Manager main window. I just need the code you
use to make mouse wheel bindings work in this area.

>>> Cosmetics: the bottom of some GUIs are greyish, while the remaining
>>> part of window is greenish.

We need to standardize on colors and put them in options.tcl. Here is my
suggestion. I'm open to alternatives.

GIS Manager and all window frames set by $bgcolor (or new equivalent).
Currently this defaults to "honeydew".

Options areas, including options panes, button bars, tabbed frames, and
similar: set to grey (or a variable)

Widgets where the user needs to enter something, including entry widgets and
text widgets: set to white (or a variable)

Output areas: like the current gronsole.


>> I can't set the background colors for windows in a nice way. I'll
>> throw a frame behind the buttons to fill in with a consistent color.
>>> 3.
>>> Longstanding: there are commands which need to have the attributes
>>> order customizable  (e.g. v.type). Will Grass GUI support this
>>> someday?

>> Nope, not from me at least. I've been dreaming of a little program
>> that takes a series of run commands and wraps them up into a shell
>> script with a UI definition that would be a superset of this ability,
>> but it's likely to stay as just a dream.
> No worries. You are doing an absolutely great job anyway.
