Yes, we plan a new AS interface for the GUI 2.0. Right now we are in
the process of collecting ideas as of what could be useful, so it's
the perfect time to ask :).

What would you need exactly? It is not quite clear to me how to
transport matrices - do you mean in textual or binary form? I'm not

thing ... Please feel free to outline any ideas you have concerning
the interface ...

Ah ,well, it's the first release, so I'm sure they'll be enhancing it
a lot along the way ...
