Ubuntu Software Store location bar prototype

So a call went out for community contributions to the embryonic Ubuntu Software Store, and some tasks were listed.

The Location bar task looked a fun challenge. So I opened gedit and started hacking away with pygtk, cairo and pango. Here are the results:

My list of things to add:
o Make the parts clickable
o I want to support icons [Done] 
o I want to try and animate the addition of parts [Done] 

o Add a navigate-back button for when the pathbar becomes too big for the allocated width.

Code is here.
