Will a method of install/release of XBMC be here by when the sweet sweet Pi launches?

I gotta ask, since the menus and such aren't hardware accelerated(as far as I can tell) What will playing music with a visualizer be like? And some of the more resource intensive skins?
Overall, Great Job, and I'll still be running XBMC on mine when I get it

Right now, it's debian based. In the future it will most likely move to a buildroot based build where all the bits can be compiled/tuned to the specific hardware.

Spend much time running xbmc on arm ?
It's fully OpenGLES hardware accelerated. And if you look close, GUI is being rendered at 1080p.
Granted not near as fast as running XBMC on an i7 where you have endless ponies to throw around but it's quite acceptable given that it is also only consuming about 2W's of power. Try that on any desktop
