If there was a set of C++ classes that interpreted it and built up a GUI
with the same look and feel, that might be useful.
Then a server could project its own GUI api and leave it to the client side
to choose C++, Java etc to build the interface at run time. I suspect that
in most cases the bandwidth required to shift the XML GUI description would
be quite a bit less than the
compiled java classes. If this is so than "Even Cooler" would be XML GUI
interpreter built into a Internet Browser.
But am I running too far with this one?
