its certainly possible right now if you have gtk installed on your  
machine and use either openmcl, sbcl or cmucl. you can see all the  
widgets you require in the graphics on this page:


info on cm-gtk is here:


look in cm-gtkl/cmio.lisp for how do do it.

perhaps an even easier way would be to create a MENU of such items  
and add it to Emacs's lisp-mode with calls to cm that do what you want.
look in cm/etc/xemacs/cm.el for how to make an Emacs menu and send  
commands to CM from an emacs buffer.
