And how about making it optional at compile time or changing the foot
(e.g. by symlinking images) with something other at run-time if Thai (or
any other for that matter) locale is set? People love the GNOME foot and
I don't feel there is a real necessity to remove it completely just
because some cultures have weird associations or meanings of something,
or is it?
