        I was looking through the .tpl files, when I realized that you were
using gifs. I am against LZW compression, but I prefer software patent
violation ( no software patents in india :-) to meek submission. But from 
what RMS has said, could you use PNG please ?. 

What you need is a %s/\.gif/\.png in the source 
giftopnm $1.gif | pnmtopng > $1.png
        for your gif to change into patent free PNGS.

        Also the theme idea seems easy, so I will most probably hackup a GNU
(new ?) theme from the default. ie just swap the images ;-).

        Read ``The C++ Programming Language'' -- Bjarne Stroustroup, quote in
chapter 24 ``Design and Programming''.  Never stay at home without it.
Also in fortune's wisdom section. But it is ironic that Einstein has 
said this about his theory of relativity ;-)
