	Cool :-) Hopefullly we'll get our nightly snapshot building working
soon, and the QA guys can have a bang on it.

	Brilliant :-) I believe we're nearly there on that anyway, but no doubt
some residual cleanup is needed.

	Wonderful work ! :-) how does it feel ? - I'm thrilled to have had all
that crud removed, and please do hack it out of the wiki [ and add any
other easy tasks you stumbled upon while hacking around here :-]

	Incidentally - we should prolly do some extra work in our backends to
allow the default icon theme to be specified per platform, and made to
match the native theme.

	eg. in vcl/unx/gtk/gdi/salnativewidgets-gtk.cxx we setup the color
schemes for gtk+ - but, AFAICS we don't detect the name of the system
theme and adapt to it.

	By looking for the "High Contrast.*" theme names, we could pick a good
default - ditto selecting, "oxygen" or "crystal" or "tango" if the
system theme matches that: I -thought- we used to do that, but ... :-)

	Anyhow - some great work here.

	Thanks !
