Ugly. Annoying. This describes most frames interfaces. I'm not
religious against frames. They're actually a good idea, or would have
been if they weren't such a half-assed glommed-on extension to
using server-push to keep the connection open also does not really
work -- the connection eventually dies. And forms really don't work
well as an input device.
My recommendation would be to talk to Andy Wilson and work on creating
widgets for tkmoo, a client running under tk/tcl. He goes by the name
Networker on JHM. tk/tcl is freely available from SunSoft for most
platforms including Windows 3.1 with win32s, Win95/NT, Mac, and source
