It's powerful, but quite a mess for end users, or at least for *our*  
end users.  Concepts are really good, but just a little old.
Looks like it's concept is born before widgets concept, and never  
sync with WP trunk ideas anymore.

We spent two weeks prototyping on it, but we dropped because of too  
many issues. Figure that we have even made some widgets! :-)

It's a shame, but is also a huge work. Hope that some code and some  
ideas will be taken to start new projects, sometimes is better than
