	Great; so - of course the framework code would need changing to find
those images at run-time (surely) ? :-)

	Heh :-) I -think- this is because we have a .PHONY target for
that .ilst file - so it is executed each time, but we don't want to
re-pack the images*.zip files each time we run build in that module :-)
so - we need some better solution (prolly not a phony rule eg.).

does that work ?

	most likely it is broken already - and just needs fixing.

	In theory (AFAIR) we use the .ilst files to work out which images are
used in .src files and include those into images.zip rather than zipping
them all up.

	Yes - the theme is chosen inside vcl/ git grep for TANGO in there
(eg.) :-)

	Anyhow - a great start - with patches for the framework/ and other
sites I pointed out this can be merged to master I think.

	Thanks !
