Nope, They are a bunch of clever coders...

That screen shot was taken from my home workstation which has an OK
video card running at 1024x768.
The display on a 21" screen at 1520x1140 @100 hz with a high end Matrox
video card, running Mosfet's Liquid theme for KDE 3.1.3/RH9 with all the
transparency and shading effects enabled on a DTP workstation at one of
my clients is simply stunning.
It is not just the display, but the redraw speed is much faster with
fewer un-needed redraws.
Do not forget the other goody in this release is the SVG import plug-in
- not exactly a half hour job. It works really well with well-formed
compliant to spec SVG. Once you import SVG and un group the elements,
the SVG elements are editable - *Nice*. In testing, I could swap SVG
files between Sketch and Sodipodi to Scribus with few problems.
