Yeah, in my case I'll have a widget in my app that does OSG, and other 
widgets that do the GUI outside of the OpenGL scene (strictly 2D GUI 
widgets in the windowing system - geez, being unambiguous is hard work 
:-) ). Think 3D Studio Max or something like that, with subwindows that 
you can dock into the main window, etc.

I've also seen people saying they're using Qt to draw widgets inside 
their OpenGL scene, it's intriguing but a) I have no need for that yet, 
and b) by the time I have that need, I expect osgWidget to be fully 
developed :-)

Sorry for the confusion,
