Right, I forgot to mention: you have to start the client with

	java foo.Main -flob ...

that'll soon go away as the mode becomes the default. Then you'll see the
insertion cursor and the cell size change.

Did you check out the ChangeLog?

If you need any other details, feel free to ask. But for general use, I
don't recommend following the latest snapshots; I'd say figure which
features are most needed, we do them and release 0.0.1 and then you use
that until we release 0.0.2.
