with 58 radial-gradients[1] to .... celebrate css3-images' advancing
into CR with the editors I guess :p

I tried to incorporate[2] that into our WCAG-friendly new style, but it
doesn't work quite well:

* IE9 and Firefox 11[3] don't support explicit length as gradient radii.
* Chromuim18 and Opera12alpha can display it, but the scrolling isn't
quite smooth. (There are 58 backgrounds, what can I expect? We probably
want to get cross-fade() specced sooner :)

I don't know what is the licence of the original background, my
derivative work is on Public Domain. Feel free to use it as some kind of
stress test!

s/have the impression that creating specs//
s/is a boring/are crazy/

I can't believe spent at least an our just to plot the stars.... I guess
this proves that the gradient syntax is indeed human writable (I was
writing the prefixed version, though).
