CHANGED : Repurposed ASCIIO for strictly designing User Interfaces in ASCII.
		  Numerous changes made : Addition of a UI component palette and addition several types of components (stencils).
		  Changed menu design from context menu to menu assigned to top of window.
		  Changed behaviour of stripes to better reflect the behaviours that UI components have.
		  Changed copy/paste behaviour to allow only ASCII text to be used for either routine.
		  Changed open to allow for opening of strictly ASCII files containing UI design for GUIIO to interpret
		  Changed save to ensure that designs created in GUIIO can be saved to a strictly text only format.
		  This project (fork) is now being called GUIIO as its focus is on GUI designs using only ASCII
OTHER NOTES:
			This module as it stands now acts as a proof of concept that it is possible to bring the affordances
			of a UI Builder such as QT Designer or GLADE Interface Builder for designing User Interfaces in a text only
			medium.  It is our hope that by version 1.0 of the release, that GUIIO can be a fully functional implementaiton
			of our goal.
