Sexy demo. Might be sexier, running-wise, if the libsexy dependency
was (1) checked for by configure and/or (2) was optional, since here
it configures/installs without complaint and then fails to run because
there is no libsexy on my current system.

Modulo that complaint, I'd love to see the current run dialog replaced
with this for an unobtrusive, high-impact upgrade.
