Just to clarify, they use lab as in "laboratory", ie experimental  
stuff that isn't part of the normal feature set.  They've been adding  
new features to that for a while and some of them are actually pretty  
nifty.  I've turned a couple on for my account but I've forgotten  
which ones.

Cheers,
