The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

greg, I don't know what your understanding of 'using this codebase to serious purpose' is, but waiting a grossly unnecessary additional 5% of time for *every* webpage to load is in my opinion definately not putting my time to good use or 'serious business'. In our company, developers actually cost money, and every second they spend waiting for page rendering to finish is a second wasted and not put to good use. We should always be right on top of performance issues; companies don't like their employees doing nothing.

Besides, if we *ever* want to reach 1.0, we just can't keep on regressing. The closer we come to 1.0, the higher our standards should be. If we have to fix regressions with every few checkins, we'll never reach 1.0.
