First of all, welcome to the list, James. :) Just fan the leftover smoke
out of your way as you enter. :)

Kinda like chicken, indeed -- Thats what I'd like to shoot for. I think
that would be preferable to having a design where portions of GNOME looked
generic, and were set apart from aspects which are -distinctly- GNOME. The
whole thing should have an even flavor, as you suggest. :)
