No, but I don't think it should be ignored. If there are a limited 
number of people with the authority/ability to do this then I think 
that's where their attention needs to be focused. 'Graphics stuff' might 
seem like polish but a smooth and responsive interface would totally 
transform the Freerunner as a palmtop device.

It's reasonably good, but not great. You'd never get compositing without 
hardware acceleration (hey, I can dream can't I? ;) )
