Good idea! I will take a look at this (I actually wrote the script, now will set
up a directory to put the stuff on, etc).

Indeed... that's my laptop, I'm going to put the cvs snapshots on
my people.debian.org place, though, I think.

oh, well, that init stuff was really not really well thought.

hmmm, on a second thought, this would not really fix the problem, I think.

Problem is the location of the images... the default window icon, mainly,
has a namespace problem that won't let me have libgksu1 and libgksu0 
installed at the same time. I see two options: moving the image to a
'versioned' directory or to a different package (but that would not help
other than Debian stuff, so I think the first one is best).

Yeah, if that's done, I guess that's a better package name =).
