Yow, it's been more than a month since my last blog! I intended to
write a blog once a week, but, well, finishing up table sorting, JavaOne and Matisse have kept me unbelievably busy in the past month:( I'll blog later about table sorting and other Mustang goodness. In the mean time I wanted to blog about Matisse.
