I've written A HOWTO/Tutorial for guibuilder (for drscheme)
Features are:
       * Focuses on getting frames working inside functions
       * Covers making your functions actually return values
       * Includes my continuation trick for returning values
       * Covers the guibuilder component archetecture
Future work will hopefully include:
       * My continuation trick needs to be explained better
       * Flesh out component architecture more
       * Ephasize "style" in the eirlier sections, and how
         most frames should be non-deterministic functions
         (i.e. have no side effects).
       * Report the Guibuilder "save bug" rather then just
         try to work around it.
Undesireable features:
       * Done in composer instead of texmacs.  (broken links,
         incosistant layouts, etc)
       * Continuations section needs to be cleaned up.
       * Section on 'how to use guibuilder without continuations'
         goes for a while, then ends up going into a dead end. I
         should either find a solution, or remove the section.
