Hi there,

	Read the notes from UDS in your blog; there are a few things there:

	a) themes (icons at least the rest comes from gtk+) are already
	   a zip file - we could make that expandable by sniffing theme
	   names from .zip files:
		+ "first file is an un-compressed text file containing
		   just the name" eg. ;-)
		+ extract & render that I guess in the combo.
		+ bit of work I suppose

	b) gettext for translations
		+ actually remarkably easy; we just need to load the
		  en_US strings from the default resource file, and
		  then - whack them through gettext
		+ I -think- there was a floating patch for this in the
		  l10n community - that we could fairly easily apply
		  with some conditional: dead useful for translators
		 (knocks a key-id build dead I think).
		+ of course, this will miss some things: help files,
		  misc. random XML files and so on but get most of it

	Anyhow - glad the conf went well,
