Heh. I've got a UPC barcode widget, unfortunately there's no way to 
share them via revOnline or whatever. I actually started out modifying 
it to generate 2of5 barcodes as well, but the code ended up being much 
messier than the LCS version, so I stopped.

Seems to happen every time I go down the widget road. Either there's
a) a better, easier way to do it in LCS or
b) a brick wall I run into where LCB isn't up to the task.

So LCS,LCB,LCD,LSD... gotta flip a coin.
