Creating Portals to new galleries & Croquet UI

Ok, I am back working on the gallery builder (after an extended detour back to the java web apps I was working on last year).
First feature on the todo list is adding an interface to create portals to link gallery with different themes. The immediate question is what kind of GUI tools to use. There is morphic (the current squeak toolkit, which is nice, but we've been warned that it will be unsupported has Croquet moves forward), tweak (maybe the next generation, still in active development with little docs or examples), or building something out of TObjects. Also there is David Smith's intriguing declaration of a completely new UI & huge changeset coming down the pike. Prob the best bet is to use Morphic until I can't & see what has baked up by then.
