It is expected that the work done on the CloudAmber popups will be moved
into trunk directly -- the rico rounded corners style popups simply
don't have the ability to do what people want as far as 'pretty' look
and feel, so we're going to need the option that the CloudAmber popups

I do not think we've done neough investigation to figure out the exact
method of plling them in, but writing tests, etc. for them at this point
is likely to be extremely beneficial and accelerate acceptance into
trunk, even if things change.
