I wholeheartedly agree! With resizeControl now firing on any change of
the rect, it makes UI management of layouts based on nested groups much
easier. TO me this  is an example of an engine enhancement that made a
big difference in reducing the burden of UI coding.

All I was doing in my post was fantasizing about another engine
enhancement to support relative coordinates instead of having to do your
own getprop/setprop handlers in behaviors and similar setups. However,
as much as I would like to see a 'relative' keyword for coordinates,
there are many more features on RunRev's todo list I'd rather see done
first.
