I should be clear too that the Icicles code is copyrighted,
in addition to being published under the GPL.  I think you
are essentially asking about sharing your personal settings
of Icicles options as a sort of suggested Icicles "starter
kit" for others, which is certainly OK.

You have posted here only anonymously, Earl. If you have
concerns or questions about customizing or sharing Icicles
code, please mail me directly.  Thx.
