Both statements are not wrong as there are touching different things.
Indeed DOpE has a widget facility which mag does not have.
On the other side mag offers a windowing interface which DOpE does not
offer as DOpE would be on the client side of that interface. 
The reason for having both mag and DOpE (and l4con) is that I like to
have multiple implementors of the same interface around. In this case
all (mag via its plugin) offer the L4Re::Console interface where a
client does not need to care who actually implements that. So the
server-side can be exchanged without the client noticing.
