I have been trying to think this through. Ive been thinking that we
could hard-code the settings to the color scheme we want, create class
properties that can be manipulated (ie, color, style), or try to
create an inheritable set of styles kind of like css. These options
increase in complexity and flexability. Which would be best to do?

that is a throwback for when i was using an actual callback instead of
a functor. With functors, the argument is unnecessary, because the
functor can be generated from the appropriate class method.

The window manager can probably just use the layout class to keep
track of its widgets. It will keep track of the widget positions just
fine. It also makes it easy to quickly hide/show the gui.

Awesome work all.
