ok - i'm home, sitting at my computer and feeling kind of groggy due to the
enormous amount of novacaine & nitrous in my system (just had a root canal -
yuk).  but as i start to integrate GWorkspace into Interface, i'd like to pose
a question to everybody; what would you like to see more:

        - Interface + GWorkspace (thus a more NeXT-ish WM)
        - Interface + it's own menus (ala WindowMaker, using NSMenu)

???

i'm organizing the menus so that they're loaded from a bundle, so we could, in
theory, have either.  i'm used to NeXT since i still work on it every day, but
i'm also very fond of WM's menu system.  so unless i get a crowd of people
vehemently disagreeing, i am going to pursue the GWorkspace route first.

comments?
