I will now read your design docs and comment on them. This week I have education
at IBM for my job. We all sit behind a PC __WITH AN INTERNET CONNECTION__ so I
can surf and read bonobo development all day long instead of listening to the
boring servlet stuf.

I am still trying to understand bonobo...

some suggestions allready:

 - have a stream inside a word/spreadsheet document.
      * we probably need autodetect
      * the current videosink can probably handle it
 - a little gnome applet to watch TV (in the panel)
      * need more fluf around the basic plugins (channel selection)
 - arbitrary locations for the plugin elements.
      * need network protocols (might kill performance?)

Snow White has become a camera buff.  She spends hours and hours
shooting pictures of the seven dwarfs and their antics.  Then she
mails the exposed film to a cut rate photo service.  It takes weeks
for the developed film to arrive in the mail, but that is all right
with Snow White.  She clears the table, washes the dishes and sweeps
the floor, all the while singing "Someday my prints will come."
