I would like it to be changed please. I find it annoying enough that
long ago we created a couple of controls with wx prefixes (eg.
wxTimeSpinCtrl and wxCalendarBox) - I've found myself looking for the
documentation for those on www.wxwidgets.org on more than one occasion
before remembering they're not in wxWidgets.

Also, if this is intended as a general use library as you describe,
then it really shouldn't be tucked away in the pgadmin/dd/hotdraw
directory. pgadmin/hotdraw would be more appropriate I think.

Quick question (and I'm not going to ask for this to be changed) - but
why didn't you use OGL, which we already use elsewhere?
