New project: Tobogan

As a re­sult of my play­ing with mootools and cre­at­ing pow­er­point-style slideshows on web­pages from re­struc­tured tex­t, I am pret­ty much de­cid­ed about turn­ing this in­to a stan­dalone, re­al ap­pli­ca­tion.

It still needs a ton of work, but here is a video show­ing how it looks af­ter a cou­ple of days hack­ing. You can see the cur­rent UI, a doc­u­men­t's source, and a demon­stra­tion us­ing fire­fox (on­ly be­cause Kon­qy does­n't sup­pose opac­i­ty, the rest of the tran­si­tions work even bet­ter on Kon­queror)
