[geeklog-devel] Controls in GL2

As you are all aware, there are a number of controls that could be used 
for various things.  For example, for a date form field you could have a 
simple text field, or a series of drop downs (one for month, day and 
year) or something more complicated like a dropdown calendar.

There are probably a number of different various of types of controls 
that could be used for all the different types of data that Geeklog 
plugins will use.  We should allow for those to be customized with 
little to no hassle, no?

Only reason I am asking is I think we may want to consider having a 
control factory that does this work for us.  It would, upon request, 
take requests for a specific control, create it, set the default data 
and return the corresponding HTML and/or Javascript (/me cringes).  The 
idea is we'd simply have a folder where GL2 admins could drop new or 
custom controls, change a template or two and have it working.

...or am I over complicated things.
