that demo is under some serious revamping right now.  Though it has some nice new features, I'm trying to optimize the sort routine.  I think I have an algorithm worked out that will let me get rid of the sort routine (major cycle hog), but it requires some serious data changes.  I'm hoping to get these changes implemented, write a game, and then maybe release the engine as a "generic" game authoring system, we'll see :)  Once I get this beast tamed, I'll release some source code...
