ROTFL. Oooh, I just *love* it when hackers get competitive. All *sorts* of
tasty features get coded then. ;-)

Actually, over 8000 people have downloaded the 0.7.7 BeOS binaries, plus
almost 2000 0.7.8 downloads to date. If that's your definition of _few_,
then we're in serious trouble. ;-)

Wow. That's great. Be sure to keep Bob posted about which cells in the UI
matrix are ready for testing:
So long as you keep on cranking, I presume that fewer and fewer will stay
red. (Of course, he'll need a QNX build machine to test your work on, but
we can figure that out offline.)

IIRC, we decided that bullets should be drawn as font-specific characters,
so that the sizing and placement works properly (in a typographic sense).
