Thanks Thomas.  If it's good enough for alpha testing, then the next
challenge will be to kickstart the alpha trials.  I have no idea how
to do that, yet.

I'll post it to the offline pollserver in a couple of days.  We can
play with it and come up with additional ideas.  We may have to see
the whole thing before we can figure out how to approach the trials -
there are many different ways.

The purpose of the trials will be to expose showstopper problems.  If
there are no showstoppers, then the number of alpha users will
naturally increase, and that will mean success.  Otherwise we have to
identify the problems, and fix them.  It could take multiple cycles of
test-fix-test to get it right.

They're small graphs, inline with text:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparkline Probably just a frill at this
point.  Not a prerequisite for trials.  I was getting ahead of myself.
