My mockups. :-) Conseo and I were afraid of those too, so we decided
to keep it plain and simple till we figured out what to do.  But I had
more time to experiment (polltrack is 10X easier than talk track,
harvesters, etc), and eventually I hit on the idea of magnification.

We were mooting an idea tonight (Conseo and I).  Imagine if Metagov
became a kind of staging ground for different software.  The user
would choose the brand and it would run for him/her in the wiki,
mailing list, and so forth.  New users would get random software.
What do you think?

Whoops.  Fixed.

This gave me some trouble at first.  It's confusing and inconsistent
if it's too big and bright when you mouse over.  Eventually I realized
that it only needs brightening when it's selected and staged.

I can do more if it's needed.
