Anyone tried to create UI Element Managers for any of the third party Ribbon controls (we use DevExpress)?

There's two that I know of. One is going through the DevExpress stuff and creating the whole gammet of controls to support developer express (it's available on GDN, just search for it) but they dont' have the ribbon yet. Another called Dex.Infrastructure (which I can't find right now but have a copy at work) supports the Ribbon but it completely replaces the deck and tab workspaces. I think there needs to be a proper one that works correctly (like I said the second while it supports the ribbon doesn't really implement it in an extensible way).

(no ribbon support)

(ribbon support but replaces base workspaces which isn't good)
