MeteorCursor widget

Here's an eyecandy widget that I made for Vaadin.

In all simplicity, it's a component that doesn't have dimensions by itself, but once you move the cursor fast enough, it generates some AWESOME particle trails behind your cursor. I don't really know if it's all that functional, and secretly hope that nobody will use it as is. But it would be neat to find out someone finding some practical use for it!

There's a demo at http://henrik.virtuallypreinstalled.com/MeteorCursor/, and the source (along with a vaadin addon JAR and example project) at http://github.com/wolfie/MeteorCursor

Works on all tested browsers with the exception of IE6, it having troubles with translucent PNG:s and it having a flickering cursor while the particles render.
