Nice idea, but here spin wont work. We will need  to have a remix, and we
can use Omega as a starting point. It has a lot of the codecs, etc already
added. Plus we will need some better artwork that appeals to kids (Rockets?
Light colored themes?) These were the things on top of my head, if anything
else pops in, I'll let you know!

Who is in? :-)
Count me in
