yup - thats why it shoudl be left to imlib_config - the user can
specify what they like there to the finest detail.
anbd to be honest. the numebr of 486's + 16 Mb of ram that will run
gnome compared to those on PII-300's is minimal - especialy considering
tat machines get faster - if you D have a 486+16mb ram then reduce the
settings yourself. GNOem shoudl NOt go overriding a users imlib prefs.
