[Pharo-project] A new GUI visual designer

I'll leave in the middle whether or not the "Morphic UI Designer" is the
right solution for Pharo, but looking at the number of posts in this thread
I do have a feeling that:
1. most do agree that a better way to create the user interface really is
needed
2. there are strong opinions on how this UI designer should and/or should
not be implemented

As most applications require a UI, having a powerful UI builder is extremely
important for any development environment to succeed.   If Pharo were to
have an intuitive UI builder, I think even more people would give Pharo a go
and probably improve Pharo's existing development environment along the way.

Göran just constructively summarized and grouped some groups and optiobs for
the "how".  So rather than arguing what "not" to do, let's try and focus on
how it will be done and who is able to help.   

Having said all that, I think Smalltalk could benefit even more if Smalltalk
had a powerful UI builder for web applications, but I guess that's outside
Pharo's scope and is something the frameworks like AIDA, Seaside or Iliad
need to address.
