Right, I forgot to mention: you have to start the client with
java foo.Main -flob ...
Ok, -flob makes a _big_ difference. Yes, the cells now expand to
adjust for text entry and I can see the text cursor. And another new
text view as well??
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?
I just pulled it down now, I guess I'll be studying it for awhile;-).
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.
For the most part this sounds reasonable. Again, I'll let Ted handle
that part of the discussion with you and for the time being do the
best I can with the on-going releases.
