I liked the quote:

Hanany said. "New physics may be required to explain this."
[in discussing the "dark energy"]
Some related pages seem to suggest that the "dark energy" is
the vacuum energy flux.

I think I've seen this before. But I've yet to see a scientific
article that explains sufficiently how a repulsive force explains
the variation in the CMB. The explanation I usually see for that
is early inflation.
If the CMB and SN results both suggest there is a repulsive force,
that that would be a very interesting result.
If you want links to the more scientific papers (you need subscriptions
to Science and/or Nature to access most of them), see:
