I hope that Carl is considering making a core with no graphics interface or only a bare minimum windowing/text/ graphic co-ordinate system. I feel that the various platform graphics interfaces are best handled as plug-ins. I noticed on OSX that there is a Ruby /Objective-C bridge to access the full Mac Cocoa interface. Perhaps this could be used as a sample to help build a similar bridge in R3? ~chris PS: I have always wondered why Postscript has never been used as an interface for both screen and paper. I know Apple tested it years ago, but could not agree on Adobe's licensing demands, so Apple developed their own GUIs.
