| were the rgb cubes the final consensus?  i thought there were more votes
| either the single color cubes or these (my fave):

If memory serves .. these ones weren't liked as well because the different
colours imply an additional level that doesn't exist .. i.e. moving from one
colour to the next.  I'd have to dig through all the archives to see exactly
what was said.  But it was after this, that David and Filip created their
other versions. (I think.)

| my personal feeling is that the rgb cubes are too busy with a different
| color on each of the three exposed faces of the cube.

I like em .. now that I've seen them working.  Plus, they'll be more
distinguishable on different backgrounds that a user may choose once we
allow them to pick their own colours.  No worry about the cubes not showing
up because of the same colour.  A lame excuse, I know.  ;)

| other than that the faq article describing the cubes looks good.
