Questions that come up frequently:
* The need to use [Bind to Field]
* The container model, people coming from VS.NET are very
confused that widgets take all the space, and believe that
this is a bug.
* Going from Tables and Boxes to a nicely looking layout.
I would try to teach people how to replicate good looking
layouts and dialog boxes using tables and boxes.
