I know theres a lot of work going on at the moment in relation to UI stuff. I personally really appreciate this, hopefully going ot be useful soon, however I was wondering if there could be an additional solution...

For most of the stuff I do I want a score count, a life counter and maybe some funky images but not much else.

Just as an idea, is it possible to add a hook into Xith that allows me to add OrthographicRenderers. Just before Xith flips the scene in switchs into Ortho mode and calls any registered OrthographicRenderers. They can then make GL style calls or something to allow them to just do basic sort of draw this texture here like this calls..?

The advantages as I see them would be simplicity, speed and flexibility.. you might consider it similar to the preRender() method in Java3D.

I don't mind implementing it if its worth it, I imagine it wouldn't be too tricky.

Any feedback greatly appreciated,
