1) There is one more file to convert to flex/bison, although this one
is more tricky.

I have not looked at it. Can someone explain (or better, put in the
wiki) how the GUI system works now?

I agree.

That is on my TODO list as well.

still just have the crap inherited from Pumpkin was a huge blow to my
