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.
