If I understand things correctly, using the loader is a bit like
"destroy the current GUI" followed by "rebuild a new GUI".

What I'm looking for is quite different: it's out of question to
*destroy* widgets, just change their layout - only the layouts are
destroyed, not the widgets. Imagine the case where a displayed
component needs a lot of time to build its contents, either from
user inputs or some long computation.

All of this re-layouting should be completely dynamic, done and
un-done several time during the application running time.

Or am I missing something?
