Overflow-node.  If no interface/widget is specified by the system, the
GMS-node's windowlet would contain an Overflow-workspace with exactly 1

If an interface/widget is specified (via GLADE XML or Bonobo), the
Overflow-workspace can be 'replaced' by that interface/widget.  This is a Loci
GUI idea we've had for a while: The user can switch back and forth between
workspace and interface/widget.  And the heirarchy of nodes in a network
determines the placement of widgets in the interface.  This may be hard to
grasp, so I'll post some more about it later.
