Yeah!  That's an example of why I wanted Kevin Reid to be sponsored  
by the GSoC project to hack on Tahoe-LAFS visualizations this summer.

Too bad GSoX sponsored him to work on caja instead.  (Although of  
course caja is super cool, and his contribution, which I think had  
something to do with a remote object protocol for caja, sounded cool.)

Maybe now that summer is ending and Kevin will be back to the old  
grindstone taking lots of courses he'll find the motivation to hack  
on Tahoe-LAFS visualizations in his spare time.  ;-)
