Angular is one of several client-side MVC frameworks that have buzz
right at the moment (Ember is another; Backbone is more bare-bones,
as befits the name).  Unfortunately, among these, it seems 
distinguished by cryptic documentation and oddball naming conventions
which do little to enlighten non-initiates.  People do impressive
things with it, but the learning curve is awfully steep...
