Indeed.

I wouldn't worry too much about that.  Now that I know it's no problem.

That doesn't really show how to add subviews, just how to set up the  
original contentView.  But I'm making good progress and I'm sure I'll  
figure it out sooner or later.

Just one more question: what state is the easygui code in?  I'm trying  
to get that to work and using it as a model.  Is that wise?  Is  
easygui supposed to be working?  Known to be horribly broken?  Is it  
actively being worked on?
