the lurker, the collaborator, and the integrator walk into a cafe...

love it.

A few suggestions I'll make on what I know is a work in progress --  
the Component main page is really coming together with visual cues,  
etc for the individual components.  I think that having a consistent  
(or close to it) size for the visual "picture" would be helpful.  I  
think it would also help to make those pics click-able so it goes to  
the particular component page.  Additionally, I'm thinking the  
component names are so small they're getting lost in the page.

The other point I'll make is that the distinctions among a released  
component vs. a preview component vs. a component in design vs. an  
experimental component seem too complex and unclear.  How about  
released components and components we're currently working on?

This is awesome work!
