Hi Chris,

Sounds good to me.

Yup, there are several included examples already using pygame (bounce,
camera, lines, pong, slideshow).  I just tried out throwing the examples
(into pippy/data/physics) and pymunk/pymunx (pippy/library) into Pippy,
and most of them worked.  Some of them depend on pyglet, I think.

Let me know if you'd like to go ahead and roll these up into Pippy --
maybe we could pick three or so of the examples for it?
