Brendan wonders if vgui can be in the core if it depends on other core
libraries, i.e., vil. In my view such dependencies are ok. That is,
there are two classes of core libraries: really basic and independently
useful functions, with vnl as a prime example; and developer-recommended
application libraries like vidl and vgui. Care should be taken to
reduce dependencies even in the second case but there is no point in
rewriting basic functionality just to remove dependence.
I am conflicted about the use of vgl in vgui. At the moment the
interface to vgui_easy2D_tableau is very simple. On the other hand it
would be convenient to support easy viewing of vgl classes. Maybe the
answer is alternative tableaux, e.g., vgui_vgl_tableau, a sub-class of
