The one can be implemented simply, the other will require an embedded
scripting language.  Please read "The Unix Philosophy", by Mike Gancarz,

Sorry, but already existing interactive features _do_not_ require scripting language at all.

That is right, that is exactly what I said.  Current interactivity is
already implemented because it is simple.   "Extending" the
interactivity to cover widgets WILL require embedded scripting language.
Some widgets change in shape, size, and color.
