Here is a problem.
The algorithm used to lay out various graphical elements (buttons and the like) can only be determined by the end programmer.
But writing layout algorithms is complex, probably not something most programmers can do.

Solution -- provide a variety of different layout managers (border layout, grid layout, so on), allow the end programmer to select one of the many choices, and give it back to the framework.
