Yep, wingo and myself have discussed creating a libgstui for common editing
widgets and guilaunch, gsteditor & other apps could definitely benefit from
a common library like this.
how about libs/ui for a location?

I'm sure it would ;)
Its no secret that I actively dislike module&wire style user interfaces for
dsp graphs - especially when it comes to maintaining comples graphs. So the
thought of being maintainer for gsteditor hardly fills me with joy. However
I will endeavour to refactor gsteditor for anything that ends up in
guilaunch (as a one-file-wonder) is almost feature complete and my intention
once that is finished is to start a new graphical editor project. This new
editor will be able to create/edit any arbitrary pipeline, and provide
developer-focused ways of running and manipulating pipelines.
This may seem to be a waste of effort when you consider gsteditor but my
main reason for wanting to do it is to learn more about writing gtk gui apps
so I am less of a danger to myself and others. It will also provide a good
environment for dynamic params to mature.
