	Sure - there are some plans around improving toolkit layout that
requires some considerable rework - are you happy to hack on this ? if
so I'm happy to write up some notes, and there is certainly a chunk of
work there to re-factor dialogs left & right.

	Are you interested ? [ can you hack ? ;-].

	Creating new artwork is of course great too, but that doesn't require
-so- much co-ordination. Personally I'd value sticking with eg. the
Tango palette, and filling out areas where it is missing icons, so we
are at least fully consistent, and can finally dump the 'default' icon
