Well, this is what exactly Alan wanted.

Correct me if I am wrong. But is this not a layering
of the ballot mockup image over a GUI layout, pixel
by pixel?

This will work if the template is based on an image,
but wont if it is based on an XML, wherein the candiate
information is parsed from input XML files.

Good work.

Hi everyone.

For those who don't know me, Fred McLain recently invited me to join the
team, mainly to help out with the Pygame front end. I don't know how
involved I'll be in general, but I can usually find chunks of time to
work on small, well-defined tasks.

I've attached a first draft implementation of the demo front-end. It
allows the user to fill out the ballot and submit it for printing. The
ballot is sent to stdout in a sample XML format. This code implements
steps 1), 2) and 3) above. Since I'm new here, I'd really appreciate
any constructive criticism.

Jan, please take a look at this and send me your comments. I especially
need to know any specific requirements for integration with your
printing module.
