No, no! :-) just that _initially_, given their variations in getting
there, i felt that.. or maybe more accurate adjective would have been
confusing, thinking from angle of newcomers being bamboozled by finding
too many ways to get something done... sometimes people like just one
option, keep it simple, don't scare them ;-) Mind you, such people
probably would never agree which 'one' avenue was 'the one'.
But I'm all good with the options, now that I've given them a bit more

Thanks for clarifying v.digit vs wxGUI too :-)
