A good way to do this would be to use the org.jdesktop.animation
package, which we already use. However, I'm less and less enthused
about the idea of entirely new Java code being planned at this point.

Agreed. Let's round up v3.2 for now. Just let me know which bugs/features absolutely need attention for v3.2, because I don't know which are most in demand.

Jon,

Have a look at

Bug 4113 - Action Buttons on counters do not respect Rotation

That will be a good one to get sorted for 3.2. Should be easy to backport to 3.1 as well. Drop me a line if you need any pointers.

Cheers,
Brent.

Something which would help a lot (aside from sorting Bug 4091, and
one other website issue which I can point you to after that) is pursuing
bugs marked as new. Lots of them are probably duplicates or due to user
error, but someone needs to have a look to determine that.
