Why?

You should think of Manipulate as the main front GUI to the app
or the computation engine.

A GUI is always the most front end.

GUI takes input from user, and call the back-end functions
for computation, and then send the result back to the user via
the GUI windows or by other means such as to database, files, etc..

Putting the GUI inside a function makes little sense to me. functions
do not call the GUI. The GUI calls other functions.
