The project sadly never came of the ground. There are a number of reasons that
could be named as the cause to this, but they don't matter.
The original purpose was to have a project that worked on developing new ideas
on how to improve the desktop usage experience. Things like making sound and
other things "just work" would be here. The development of a menusystem could
be a part. The reality is that those projects allways end up at the bottom of
everyone's list and more urgent things actually get done.
