	We:

		a) haven't finished yet
		b) are NOT going to be distributing the app to the public
		c) will be statically linking with Motif ( AFAIK ).

	Basically its a work in progress/testbed which is intended for internal
	usage only. We know the system will work its simply a question of
	making it pretty enough to meet user expectations for look and feel
	( versus the real thing [ its a simulation ] ). Lesstif won't 
do that for us.
