Comment on Bodega

I'm inclined to both agree and disagree with @brh below. I think, if it adds to the general theme of an application's purpose, it doesn't necessarily have to be wrong to top it off with a little well-designed eye candy on rare occasions, as long as it doesn't interfere with the intended use.

On the contrary, though, if such bonus whistles adds sluggishness to my system, I'd steer clear of it all the same (which is the major reason I almost never use Java applications).

One great example of another app that implements some really non HUD-standard "feats", but all of which goes hand in hand with the whole concept of the app, is Times.
