I installed myunity in precise. It has an inconsistent user interface 
which breaks accessibility (left and right buttons to swipe across pages 
of options when a tabbed notebook would make more sense and be more 
consistent) and it is not keyboard navigable. It has a rather lurid 
green branding (with no transparency on this so you can see where it 
covers up the dotty background) and is some distance from the pixel 
perfect elegance of the rest of the unity stuff that has been built, but 
this is OK, it can be fixed, it just isn't there yet in terms of looks. 
More importantly is it a good framework for managing options and can we 
add enough in there to satisfy the needs in particular of the people who 
like the great stuff in the accessibility plugins.
