How far off the main codebase is it?  Also, what do your on-disk and 
memory sizes look like right now?

We'll have something post-worthy either tomorrow or Friday.  We've gone 
back and done some pretty large visual changes to the design.  The 
underlying principals haven't changed but a some of the interactions 
have.  Sorry about sounding vague, we just want to be able to tell a 
pretty good story this time instead of just having screenshots.

Recent builds of sugar (like, from source?) don't use socket embedding 
anymore.  We're using a window manager, just like the rest of the 
planet.  That makes things a lot easier for guys like you who are 
attempting the impossible.
