If you're referring to the gui screenshots of the original ubuntu spec, those were just mock-ups
from the author to help illustrate the different features. The current preferences dialog looks very
different and has much less options. It should be HIG conform.

The version currently in trunk is a partial rewrite which separates mousetweaks into daemon and gui.
This was done to get rid of the annoying tray icon and to make it possible to integrate the
configuration into some other app.
One idea here would be to hook into gnome-mouse-properties and add an Accessibility tab if
mousetweaks is installed and Assistive Tech is enabled. I'm not sure though if this is possible
without patching gnome-mouse-properties.
