Gambas archive meaning a compiled Gambas executable, some new compiled Gambas 
library object, or just a directory full of Gambas source files?  I'd be okay 
with that in any of those cases, btw.

This part sounds especially good, because then "libraries" written in Gambas 
would have nearly the same ease of use as those written in C/C++.

But I'm assuming that if you made a form in such a project that you wished to 
use as a control in other projects, it still wouldn't appear in the Gambas 
IDE's toolbox - you'd have to instantiate it and place the control 
programmatically at runtime.  Is that accurate?
