Vital seems to have a really damn nice concept behind it. The visuals 
don't look quite so hot though... ;-)

If I could figure out how to do the whole "drag boxes around, draw 
lines" stuff with Gtk2hs, I might have a go at bettering this myself... 
but that's unlikely.

GEM Cutter also falls into the category of "hey, that's interesting, I 
should go find out about this stuff..." ;-)
