So what happens if you want to make UI elements that are linked? Ie, you
check this check box and this other text input box that was inactivated
becomes active. Or you type an IP address in one text box, and another text
box is updated on the fly with a calculated default gateway. Is this type of
thing doable with SIL? If so, it's a great step forward. If not, it is
identical in capabilities to the Debian configuration management protocol
documented at http://debian.org/~wakkerma/config6/
