Well, There are a lot of commercial widgets out there (We won a couple)
which provide tons of functionality that I don't care to re-write (look
at those from xrt and/or int). These are NOT complete applications. I'd
like a way of building an xforms app, which uses these external widgets
(if possible). If not possible, I just need to know.

Is it possible to build a small app w/ the widget, and a small app w/
xforms, and make the two communicate behind the scenes? This would get me
there, without really having a single program, but the user would not
have to know the difference.
