Alright, will do. While I'm really leary about using a custom toolkit, at
least in the long-run, I trust Gene will be able to produce something usable
for the demo. I've already pretty much modified some of my existing ballot UI
components and am just about done piecing together a prototype, so I'll be
ready with an alternative if things don't work out. I've been looking closely
at the BVM and RII code, and wonder where the curses interface will come into
play; should it be more loosely coupled to curses, since we will be using a
different interface, not curses? I'll see what I can do.
