Jon and I reviewed his Gallery Viewer mock-up this afternoon and discussed some tweaks to the keyboard interaction. I think this will be a good demo of the keyboard accessibility plug-in.

Our question now is with the timeframe for implementing it. Justin's goal for code freeze is Wednesday this week i.e. two days. That's a bit tight to implement an exemplary demo from scratch. Justin favours postponing it to 1.4, but then that leaves us with the question of what to do for a keyboard-a11y plug-in demo for 1.3 (since the current portal demo is broken).

So our options seem to be:

1) Focus on implementing an all-new demo, and get something completed in time for code freeze.

2) Postpone the new demo 'til the next release, and either

  a) remove the current not-working portal demo (and put in a "Coming Soon" sign), or

  b) use Colin and James' Philosophy Lesson demo as a temporary portal demo for 1.3, to be replaced in 1.4 with the Gallery Viewer.

Personally, I favour option 2b, but I'm wondering what other people think.
