Hi all,

As for inclusion on the current version of gNS, I also don't believe
it's a good idea. Like Sam said and very well, I think it should be
perfected (if needed) and include it on the next release.

As for easy installation of all artwork on this current release, a
package could be created. This way those who want the changes could just
install the package (via normal install or PPA).
