It's sort of finished!! I'm running it (on an SVN build admittedly) and
it's stable but the main problem is a lack of instructions on how to set
it up - took me ages to find that the maps setup requires a country input
as the location if you are outside the USA whereas the current, 3day and
6day forecasts can do a lookup of your nearest major city (even here in
New Zealand with Simons' new weather.com scripts!).
I think the only rough edges as far as code goes is that sometimes when
changing the order of display items, in setup, it gets confused and
duplicates them instead of moving them (and then sometimes crashes) and
there seems to be a few debug outputs left in there so a bit of cruft
appears in the logs.
Overall I'm very impressed - as I can set up for the conditions in several
locations around the world so I have something to talk about with my
