[Omaha.pm] Fishing for GUI ideas...

So Mario and I wrote this tool in Perl that kicks out HTML:
Click the pretty colors.
I have this crazy notion of some sort of GUI where:
- Users can seamlessly scroll left and right hundreds of thousands /
millions of letters without having to stop and jump to another page.
- I can add parallel rows of ~300 letters which can be clicked to show /
hide them. But somehow the current horizontal expand/collapse will still
work. Overlapping rows would magically bump out of each others way.
- Users could add their own notes at certain places.
Given that all this data is unpredictable, with tens of thousands of
clickable things in the same dataset...
How would YOU write that GUI?
