	I think at the very least, we should post about particularly
impressive open source games. For instance, if a game manages a strange trick
that is worth learning, or is otherwise good as a demonstration of a toolkit
or somesuch. I know when I was teaching myself X11 programming, other people's
code was extremely useful (probably moreso than the man pages). Especially for
little tricks that aren't always explained (Like restricting a window to a
minimum size, or having it accept a delete event)
