[plt-scheme] GUI Development Approach

Three thoughts:

 - As others have said, units will help with this problem

 - With a good MVC structure you shouldn't have widgets
directly updating other widgets.  Updates should go through
the controller and model components.  So standard MVC you
end up with a single cycle

 - FrTime (functional reactive programming) will break the
cycle that MVC introduces
