about <- "
This example shows a simple interface to select a CRAN mirror.
It extends the `chooseCRANmirror` functionality by adding
filtering and giving a reasonable default size.

## our data

## Basic layout
w <- gwindow("Select a CRAN mirror", visible=FALSE)

g1 <- ggroup(container=g)
glabel("Filter:", container=g1)

## main widget
tbl <- gtable(mirrors['Host'], container=g, expand=TRUE)

## button group
