Sure, HBox, VBox and Table uses this, but since it's not recommended,
it wasn't made easier. You'd have to inherit from Container and place
your children, taking care of required methods.

I know understanding these layout managers are not easy, but give it a
try, since after some experiments you'll get used. You can mail the
list or mail me in private to get some feedback on how to do things.

As I said before, maybe your app fits in Eagle scope, then you can use
it, it's much simpler and I have pre defined layouts. Forms are just a
matter of placing fields, labels are already done and aligned.
