A crazy idea popped into my mind this week-end: showing off some bling!

Python and Pigment coupled together allow you to do really nifty stuff in no time. Hacking what's shown in the screencast takes about 500 lines of code and customising the layouts and the animations is a matter of minutes.

For this I thank Arek who is in deep need of that stuff since MacSlow aka the bling master left him.

The whole thing is made with the Pigment library (itself coded in C/GObject/OpenGL). This sample runs pretty smoothly (50 FPS) using nearly no CPU even on my shitty Intel 915 (synchronisation to VBlank is still missing with DRI though: please Intel, save my life!).
