Richard knows what I mean by good code. He himself states that the cuurent gui 
demo code is partly crap and needs to be rewritten.

So why not start with one feature and go from there ? 
I get the impression it is like a car. We an engine. It is supposed to be 
good. We have the drawing of what the car *can* look like. It's a beautiful 
car. We even have documents describing details of the car and how they should 
work. What we don't have is a model or a prototype car. 

Well you know what I mean. And just like in cars which hardly ever reach the 
market they way they were designed we won't see the gui_demo go unchanged 
when being connected to the middleware.
