That's what I'd like to end up with eventually.  I'd like to split up
the UI into various components, such as:

- page preview widget
- treeview to view parameters
- widgets to allow editing of parameters, such as a curve editor
- combo to view string lists
- print queue browser

The user of the library would use the components as they required.

I'm not sure if I have sufficient time to get this done for 5.0,
though.  I still need to get the plugin working before I can start
changing it.
