Plugin-ing UI

Two days ago I've reported that parts of UI can be generated. The idea was to define a hierarchical UI that the programmer can define any node in a tree as a generator node for child controls. For now the single wrapped part is the Ribbon's tabs UI. As for now it looks just like in screenshot.The cool part of this code is that is not only generated, but is setup as a part of an UI plugin. This simply means that at least in case of extending/changing NaroCAD UI regardless of underlying implementation. Also it is hierarchically, but also permit to inline your own UI objects (WPF/XAML defined).
