I glanced at the quick guide. Actually MiGLayout looks promising, but
personally I'd use it if it's implemented with intuitiveness and visual
sense in mind. Without doubt they should work and show rendered layout in
design-time and all these "dock west", gaps etc should be available as a
context menu items or maybe some tool buttons. Otherwise if one have to
learn the string constraint language, he can fall into the same trap as with
regular expressions, I mean if you don't use them on a regular (ironic
coincidence) basic, you learn them every time from the start :)
