A couple of lingering issues with our build scripts and some minor styling issues will likely keep us from freezing until mid-day tomorrow, so let's hold off on 0.3b3 QA until those get squashed.

Our approach, unlike other mobile toolkits out there, is largely unobtrusive and lets you develop content without hard-baking it for use via AJAX. This makes content more reusable, and it makes testing and debugging way, way easier.
