Why is Konfabulator "Pretty?"

I can only speak for myself here. I think some apps focus on and make  
certain things easier to do 'out of the box'. But Rev IS the box so a  
lot of new people have a hard time getting to the bells and whistles.  
I am not thinking of changing Rev in any way but rather of a supplied  
set of spify utilities for this kind of thing. Along the same lines  
as the Profile aspect is useful but only if you need it and the  
Report builder or ButtonGadget or Chart Maker etc. etc. These are all  
doable in Rev but having a tool set or kit to make doing them simply  
or easily makes a lot of sense to those that need them. I would like  
to see a set of visually attractive tools for doing a lot of these  
things easier. That's all.
