Alternative Mma front ends?

Dear Mathgroup:

Has anyone created other front-ends for Mathematica (specficially, on  
the NeXT platform)?

What I had in mind was a spreadsheet-and-graph type of interface,  
such that you could have a window open for each list-type variable,  
and interactively change values, etc; then you could press a button  
and have the data graphed; then you could interactively change axis  
ranges, line styles, etc.

I think this type of interface would make Mma even more incredibly  
useful than it already is.

What do you think; has this been done?  Is it a good idea?
