Reproducibility and GUIs

        For a paper on "Reproducible Econometric Research,"  Achim Zeileis  
and I would be interested
        in hearing from anyone with (positive) experience and/or suggestions  
about GUI-based data
        analysis from a reproducibility perspective.   We omitted coverage of  
this topic in an initial
        draft on the well-known principle:  if you can't say something nice,  
say nothing at all,"  but have
        now been encouraged add something since "point and click interfaces  
are the preferred interface
        for many applied researchers."  Reference to literature and/or  
software that address this issue
        would be especially welcome.

        I'll be happy to summarize, bowdlerize and anonymize as you wish if  
you would like to write
        privately.  If you would like to see the current version of this  
paper, it is available from:
