Jess, the easy list of constraints for design is "whatever BeOS R5 is capable 
of now."  OBOS R1 will = BeOS R5.  As for the name, Michael Phipps still seems 
to be going with "OpenBeOS" and "OBOS" as the abbreviated form.  Designing 
things with transparency and antialiasing is a waste of time at this point - 
not because I like or dislike your designs or anyone else's, but because they 
cannot be used in R1 of OBOS if they contain such effects.

As for the rest... I don't do any flaming, but I do feel that Stuart's concerns 
are valid.  I have been voicing the same concerns.
