I figured now that we are closing in on Alpha, I'd dig up this old
thread and see if there's interest in having a demo contest kicked off
with the Alpha release.  That is starting the contest when the alpha
comes out, with the winning demos getting to be included in the Beta
or final R1 releases.  Rules might have to be set, such as coding
style must follow Haiku guidelines, icon as well, etc.
