:) Good explaination :) I converted it to png equivalents, and they look
damnit good inside apps! I attached a sample shot of new control panel with

Uh, a lot of people complained for too windows-like look. I'm not
sure how will default look like, but most of the components are planned
to be enough configurable to achieve desired look.

I checked; excelent theme! Thanks. I will try to mix them both, or as
alternative we could ship ede with Etiquette theme (or provide it as
'hicolor', aka. fallback theme).

Yes, this is one of top todos. Current edelib is pretty good with
.desktop files; one of the things left to be done is to add some xml
support in edelib.

Yea; for example, with fltk is shipped almost finished editor as demo so
adding it would not be a problem; with efltk code comes ecalc, and
hoping that porting will not be a big deal. But minesweeper, probably
someone already made it or is interested to make it, since I'm not good
with this game :)

Probably you've seen previous thread with extending current/future
components. This should be part of that too.
