Can you give examples?
I've run into no real troubles so far. I would expect it to be a  
little weird moving all my fonts around -- how else would it activate/ 
remove them?

The only problem I see is that you still need to use Font Book to  
create collections in the Cocoa Font Panel.

The font store is an extremely nice way to preview commercial fonts,  
as a bonus. I can see their motivation for making the app, now.
