Hehe. That is funny.
We can have a blog post that says - hey, we are approaching our beta
milestone and with a beta milestone, comes a new design, appropriate for

linked).

(Is anyone else feeling a bit uncomfortable discussing this in a public
mailing list that actually exposes the gist before it happens?)
