Hopefully by now I can say welcome home :)

Just curious, was my assessment about the reason we're depending on the 
snapshot correct?  Other than that, I think we're on the same page, but 
see below.

I think there's general agreement that even once the showcase settles 
down it's ok to show off how tiles can be integrated with other 
frameworks and thus have dependencies on other frameworks.

I don't think we need to jump that far (sandbox).

The catch is that some of us want to ensure that these dependencies 
aren't a part of the core framework build, but are instead in a totally 
separate (but releasable) location (/samples for instance).
