You're getting pretty darn close :-)  The only difference between libglade (or
pyglade, both written by the same guy) and what we'll use, is that the *glades
specify a gtk interface.  But, since we want to have other kinds of
interfaces, we'll make something (by changing pyglade) more generic.

So, instead of a tag like this:


we'll have something like this:


which can then be 'translated' into gtk, qt, html, etc., depending on the
front-end used with VSH.

But keep in mind that this information needs to be transferred across the
Internet in our Internet-distributed VSH system.  This is part of what Brad
and I call an 'XML representation'.
