Could you elaborate on why you think Visual Studio .NET makes this
significantly easier than PLT Scheme?  (I can think of several
reasons, but am curious to know what yours are.)  After having
produced two commercial applications using PLT Scheme, I guess I
disagree that GUI programming with PLT Scheme is hard, "steals my
time" or is somehow "by foot."  But my goals may differ from yours, or
there might a difference in backgrounds.
