It looks like the Design Studio will bring up some interesting
while it's being made - things like "what's the line between content and
software?" (do brushes count, etc) and how should the various things
(whatever they are) we want be delivered via the Design Suite?
(packages? webpages? packages of bookmarks to webpages? packages of
