I think I get the idea that you are talking about here. So when I right
(button 3) click on a loci, I get a "MS file manager type thing" with the
loci contents in the window and options for the loci at the top (as
menu-buttons)? Should the window that appears be imbedded in the loci
window, or in its own X window? Just want to make sure I am completely with
you on your ideas.

That sounds great to me. I just didn't know what you plans were for
changing the main loci-core and didn't want to interfere with them. I just
committed some more cvs changes today (see my next message) and modified
the directory structure a little, but I think I have a "firm" structure for
now. I'm definately open to changes, and will be very interested to hear
your ideas on
how to structure things. They'll probably be lots better than my structure
since I just ended up building the structure through trial and error.

Keep me updated on your thoughts and plans. I'll be continuing to code
heavily for the next few days (until I have to, ack, get back to classes)
and then things will lighten up. Thanks much for your comments!
