I also vote no for GUI tool to build web apps. We need to have a web 
tool for building web apps.

About that start/stop GUI console, this is just for newbies to ease them 
  first steps into Scribo CMS. Remember, these users usually won't be 
Smalltalkers, so we shoud provide them such entry points like a simple 
start button in a simple one-click Scribo distribution.
