I've not yet gotten to Template::Declare so that I can't mention it. I'm
just swimming on the javascript and continuation of Jifty and ready to dive
there man~

It depends on how deep Jifty would dip its hands into desktop. Anyway, most
basic step may be to add or strengthen Event. Jifty's dispatcher now can
touch the Action, Model, and Template. In general, GUI's callback is tied up
with event, and the callback of GUI corresponds to the action of Jifty, then
what about event?

Here, I think, Jifty upgrades Event to the same level with the Action,
Model, and Template, and then controls the Event with the others. This could
be a steady step forward to desktop.

EditInPlace works well. It was just my personal... Never mind!
