I hope so.  The idea reminds me of a cross between one of my favorite
packages/gui's (ViSta, and the icon map/guide map) and a nifty
program, LabView (if you aren't familiar with it, it is a
drop-and-drag program for designing lab measurement and data analysis 
(from the lab measures) -- just "connect the dots" to form a new
collection/analysis tool for recording lab data...).

(for those of you not familiar with java beans, they are reuseable
software components designed to be worked with visually through a gui,
rather than "programmacally").

But it's a long way off :-(.

best,
