Thanks Richard for remembering :-)

Currently my implementation does a couple of things GM doesn't. But, be 
forewarned, it doesn't work on multiple card stacks. Just single card 
stacks (GUI's). I need to fix that and will as soon as I have *that* 
need ;-)

It allows you to position objects/behaviors for different platforms. So, 
if you want a button sized differently on the Mac from the PC, it's 
simple. It also allows you to create 'separator' pane controls, which 
allow you to resize components within a window by dragging a separator 
control. There's other stuff there too.

best,

Chipp
