Yes, the index would make things easier for online
documentation as well. I mean, it takes some effort to
find where "refinements" are mentioned...

Take it as "I didn't fully read all the Core documents
prior trying to do things with the View". I did read
the View documents though.
Speaking about view: has anyone written a bug-list of
some sort for View, or even better, a list of work
arounds to known issues? With my first attempt, I
found several flaws. For example the choice face seems
to decide the size of the button from first string,
resulting in trash if following strings are lengthier?
I also don't know how to produce a button that would
close the window peacefully, I always get trash, if I
press "ESC" and the next time I run the script, it
doesn't work... These kind of show stoppers are a pity
because otherwise View seems to be very nice
