Our goal is to have an early version of the new demo portal ready in  
the next week or two. This probably won't include fully revamped demos  
for each component, but it will at least house our existing demos  
nicely. Logistically, Jacob and I still have a few details to flesh  
out, but the idea is to take an iterative approach to implementing it:

1. Create the overall portal
2. Move existing demos into it
3. Make improvements to some of the easier demos in terms of styling,  
code, and context
4. Tackle the harder stuff

It's likely we can address #1 and #2 over the next few weeks, while  
new/refreshed demos will take a bit longer, and likely won't be ready  
in time for Infusion 1.2. The obvious exception here is the Image  
Reorderer, which Jacob and I have already improved for 1.2.

Website, along with links to docs and tutorials on the wiki. Code,  
we'll try to keep directly tied to the release package so that there's  
no risk that sample code goes out of sync with the release. Seem
