So you need something buried in Tab's head to convert it to Tab's way of 
expression so you can input into your head to make sense of what Brad is 
talking about. This could be a very long thread.

I will add that the richness of the radial-gradient syntax would help 
with linear-gradients so with don't have different gradient line 
(segmenst) lengths when transitioning from side to corner. The only way 
to control this now is using background-size.

I having trouble just to reply to any part of this thread before another 
5 or so messages are added deeper.
