So just out of interest *are* there any known easter eggs or GNOME or
any other free software? I was under the impression that easter eggs
were an unfortunate casualty of open source, ie there's not much point
putting them in when they're far more likely to be discovered by someone
perusing the source than by accidentally triggering them. And as the
credit for free software normally goes straight to the author rather
than a corporation he has less motivation again to put a personal stamp
