I see two solutions to the two button child problem.
1. Have one 'add child' button, then allow the user to choose between
adding a new child or an existing child
2. Have one 'add child' button, then allow the user to enter in the
child's name, a text box could list all existing people who have
similar names. If the user wants to add a new child they can fill in
the information ignoring the text box, if the user sees a person that
may be the child, she can choose the individual from the select box.
The individual's information would be displayed. A button at the bottom
could allow this individual to be linked to a parent ('add child').

Subject: [Gramps-devel] GNOME 2 progress report
I'm continuing to make a bit of progress on the GNOME 2 interface. The
gallery still needs a bit of work, but most items are now functional.
In the family view, buttons now exist to add children to the family. The
buttons are not functional yet, because I'm not exactly sure how they
should operate. A child can be added in one of two ways - selecting a
child that already exists in the database, or adding a child that does
not yet exist. These were separate (and confusing) buttons in the
previous versions of GRAMPS. Right now there is only a single button for
an Add function. How should a distinction be made between the two cases?
Id appreciate suggestions on how these should be handled.
