With over a month of (evening) work gone into aila (and 131 commits on my Google code svn repository) I am happy to say that aila is at a stage where it can demonstrate it's usefulness and features.
So I have done a screen capture and attached it here (warning: ze French man that I am decideeed not to talk over the video, so take 8 minutes to play some relaxing track -> http://www.jamendo.com for Creative Common licensed music if you need ;-).
Please note that this is a zip container for an Ogv video. I used "recordmydesktop" which natively encodes to (free as in free software) Ogv. The results is pretty good, and conversions to mp4 or avi was just too lossy for me to put these versions up (specially given the screen cast all happens in a terminal, loosing the abililty to read the input and output was not an option).
Here's a screen shot that is quite representative of the video, so if this scares you don't waste the time for the 50MiB download ;):
