Awesome.  I also sympathize with Bert's desire to leave image-y thing
to images and SVG, but agree with the others that gradients are a
highly-desired low-hanging fruit that is worthwhile to fold into CSS.
I've created/stolen a gradient creator myself that sees a lot of use
in my designs, but it's a little cumbersome to use, and I'd really
like to be able to animate the gradients.  Using % to specify my stops
has been a dream for a long time too.

Cool.
