Very true.  Having played with an iPhone3G the UI is very, very nice to
use and that's mostly about the performance of the graphics.

Personally, I do want the graphics stuff sorted - it'd be nice to see
*where* on the list of priorities it sits at OM.  There aren't any
specific bugs in the trac about this (maybe there should be?)

Me also :-)
