|1. Do we still keep the same style XML?
|2. Do we want the placement XML for the GUI elements or
| do I hardcode it (Hardcoding will save me some time.)

I -do- think the MVC architecture, driven by XML configuration files, is
the -right- approach to the design.

However, at this point, I would say that whatever Anand feels would
allow him to create the GUI most quickly is what we should go with. We
can go back and retrofit the configuration stuff after we have something
that's at least demonstratable.

It's not intuitively obvious to me that hardcoding actually -does- save
time (given the ease of gnosis.xml.objectify, and the XML parts that Anand
has already uploaded)... but I defer to Anand's judgement on this.
Basically, let's just make a screen look like Alan's screenshot.

The one exception (which Jan mentioned in another post) is that we want
the vote results to be output into the XML format that Jan has
documented (as an improvement of my old sketch of the format).

Yours, David...
