Hmmm, RG works quite well on my budget laptop's 1280x800 display. As

The Zyn UI is a whole 'nother matter - it works fine, but you can't
resize it, can't fix the font size issues (text chars too big to fully

I doubt that "most" people on this list use ecasound. ;-) But GUIs are
NOT the perfect UI for everything!
IDEALLY, your program is split in 2 parts. One part is the back end that
does the work and has a complete, cleanly-defined and well-documented
API callable from multiple languages. The other part is the UI. If the
backend's API is good, the UI can be completely separate from the
backend. If someone doesn't like the UI (it's too cluttered, too heavy,
too little) they can roll their own. If someone needs a text UI, they
can write one, too.
That way, "non-UI-design"-focussed programmers can make a great back
end, while those more interested in UI design can make a great front end.
