find it kind of nice in applix where using the star you can find some
non-program specific items fast

if I DID have some new pixmaps I WON'T use any foot except for the menu one
since I think that i's confusing to have both drawers and menus have feet in

if I do get any time left after work and panel hacking I'll code up some test
