Someone who's willing to use torrent (which I believe to be evil :p)
they shouldn't complain about 5 additional megabytes, as they will be
Uploading/downloading a lot more than that.

SWF will hopefully ease cross-platform development, it won't lose ground

I've been told GLADE is evil, but writing GTK# code manually can be very
frustrating, so I wait for stetic
