Yes, it is possible to "stream" faces ;-)

The main difference from VID is that developer doesnot have to specify any
absolute information regarding positioning and size of GUI elements in
layout. Everything will be relative and all elements will smartly react on
the size of a window. So we need to write own 'layout for that and also at
leas basic GUI elements/styles. Writing styles by-hand is a lot of work so
my idea is to make style-editor where you will be able to visualize your
custom GUI style and include it into system. Just first thoughs but I will
look at it right after new SWIS release...
have a nice day ;-)
