I think Mauro (CC'ed) is our widget expert.

I don't think I understand the plan in this aspect.  If important
information is missing from the manual, it can and should be added.
If you want to add tutorial-style sections, that could also be a good
idea, provided that the subject is so complex that reading the main
description is too hard without first reading a tutorial introduction.
If this is what you mean here, it is, of course, very welcome.  But
the general idea of the existing manual, which is to describe both the
user-facing UI and the Lisp-level reference, is correct, IMO.
