BUGS
       Many, including :

       1) At non-square	aspect ratios particles	move oddly due to  a  particle
       system that's kludged on	a 1 by 1 floating point	square.

       2) There's no non-floating point	particle system

       3) no support for -geometry

       4) There	is no fourth bug.

       5) -r uses the top left corner of the root window. D'Oh!

       6) -r doens't take keystrokes in	the root window

       7..N) Not sure, but they're probably there.
