Drew, I think I'm all set for now. I appreciate you outlining the steps for 
starting with a minimal configuration of icicles, then progressively using more 
of its functionality.

Glad to hear too that we're on the same page regarding customizations. What I 
have in mind, if I get around to it, would indeed be a "starter kit" in the way 
that we're both thinking. It would comply with both the GPL and icicles' 

Thanks again for the help. I'll be in touch if I do have any other questions.
