What about AppDesigner?

Considering some of the scripting functionality that can be added to an interface now via Nicolas's StepTalk palette, it seems to me that Gorm can
be used for much more now that just designing/building interfaces.

Gorm could always be used for more than this. :) The StepTalk palette really just takes it one step further and allows you to do the coding in Gorm itself. I, however, wouldn't want to name it based on abilities given to it by a
palette which does not come with it by default.

Object Builder

Idea for the future: Gorm + OmniGraffle-like diagram editing + NSController + other GNUstep extensions -> Object Builder.

With well designed Lego-blocks:
* controllers
* value transformers
* object presenters (*)
* object views
* computation objects
... one would be able to build an application using ObjectBuilder just by creating an object network graphically. We are not that far form that :-)

(*) I am now developing presenter concept for AgentFarms, after I finish it I will write a short description. It is a concept for object-network based documents. If someone is interested ealier, let me know.
