 If none of the standard layout managers let you achieve what you want in an
efficient way, you can just write your own layout manager.  This is actually
what you end up having to do anyway if you are going to have a UI that works
correctly (for any different screen size, for changes to the screen
decorations like an IME being displayed, etc), but it is actually probably a
lot easier to do this correctly by just writing your own layout manager than
using AbsoluteLayout.
