Ideas for the uDig experience

* Start by double-clicking a file. uDig figures out format automatically. Mom doesn't even know what uDig is -- she just double-clicks.
* Will uDig pass the Mom test?
* jEdit-style plugin Manager. But don't call them plugins!
* basic editing using printer and scanner/digicam
* intermediate editing toollessly
* virtually unlimited undo/redo.
* If my mom can figure out how to use uDig, without training or manuals, I'll be convinced of its excellent usability.
* She notices some words in the corner: "Press the Ctrl key to make changes to the map".
