Envisage GUI Application
------------------------

This class handles the life-cycle of a Pyface GUI.  Plugins can
display windows via mechinisms such as edit_traits().

This is intended to be a very simple shell for lifting an existing
pure TraitsUI or Pyface (or even Qt) app into an Envisage app.

More sophisticated applications should use Tasks.
