It's not clear to me what you want me to commit. Do you want me to update
the theme document that I wrote and commit it to CVS? If so, what should I
the document's filename be and what directory should it go into? Or are
you asking for help making the code changes you mention? I'm sorry, it
just isn't clear to me what you are asking me to do.
If it is easier for you to update my document to reflect the changes that
you make, you can feel free to commit it into CVS. Either way is fine.
