Well, I am aware of the fact that a visual design environment like lazarus
(and delphi and VB), it's easy to fall into the trap to base your backend
design on the GUI design. If Eclipse or KDevelop have a solution for this
problem, then I'd like to hear it, but if they "solve" the problem by not
being a visual design environment at all, the complete point is moot; then
it's really unfair to say they're better because they *lack* features :-).
