Pseudo parabolic zoom.

I know that stuff about each applet being a separate process yada yada which makes it hard to implement parabolic zoom, but what about this idea that I thought of?

Say, you hover your mouse over an icon, awn tells it to zoom 3 times the normal icon size. Then, at the same time, awn tells the icons around it to zoom 2.5 times? Then the icon beside the ones zoomed at 2.5 will zoom 2 times and so forth.

The way it could work is that when process-5 is in focus (the one with the mouse hovering on) it will tell the other processes 4 and 6 to zoom a little.

What do you guys think?

Sounds good. You should go to the AWN page and suggest it see if they can do it. I know I wouldnt mind seeing that in mine :)
