I can feel the debate over a '#wysiwyg' property in formapi coming...

I will say, I like their CSS layouts for quickly putting together a
skeleton theme, but these features all have established counter-parts in
our world (tinymce, farbtastic, and whatever Ted ended up calling his
calendar widget). So, what's the excitement? Thinking of core inclusion
for some of it? Or just more contrib modules? Does the TinyMCE vs.
HTMLArea vs. FCKEditor debate need a new player in the mix?
