Release early, release often.

I'm generally very interested in declarative GUI programming, but not
nearly enough acquainted with the whole topic to judge one project's
approach over the other. I just followed standard scientific evaluation
technique to select the projects to consider: The ones with the most and
most recent activity win.

So far, my impression is that documentation is severely lacking, but
then I'm too busy watching Babylon 5 right now and did not get more
than half an hour or so looking at grapefruit.
