i finally got a chance to look at this. great job!

one comment i have is that the "import from thredds library" window
should be resizable, as the thredds widgets are too big for the current
size window.

i wasnt able to get a map overlay on it, maybe i need a quick tutorial
in the basics.

we are just finishing a new catalog specification with lots of new
metadata, that we will show at the DLESE data conferencce. in the next
few weeks, i will have a new catalogUI library for you to use that takes
advantage of the new spec. hopefully it wont be too hard to replace the
one you are using now.

thanks for your work!
