It appears that I misspoke.  I was correct that the special edition now comes
with the GUI Builder.  It does however still have some built in limits for unit
sizes.  Where the intent is to provide a compile system for education and/or
small personal projects the limits seem reasonable.

However I will look into at what point we might be able to remove them all
together.  That is when we will have our next major release of this product
line.  Note that the full Professional Edition has no limits and does have a
fairly complete set of utility bindings that come with it.  That's not very
expense and is roughly the same cost as VC++.
