hummm.. what is in the way to use png-icons ...
why not make compatible to use png-icons and iconsets as tar...
dont mus be the same as kde one... but in this was.. manny icons..
in a pack, with a explizit name ant this as icon/png-recource..
it shold automaticly converting in the right size how it need..
i think, the programmer can creating a routine who read
a tar.gz or bz2 out and copy it in a folder as theme.. so..
and this icons or png's ... and of corce why not a xcf as icons ?
jea, the gimp images where can make more as one tables or how
named it (so, i dont be so good in english
the forst it is a 8bit icon,
the secont a 16bit and next a 24 and 32 collored icon and this can
make in a xcf... i think.. oky, this was the idea with xcf files..
the gimplibary is GPL (open) ad therewith manny other things too..
take a look to kde-libs and the sourcecode of themes and png libary to
show it.. in the kde-sourcecode.. why not new ideas taken if you are look
in the Linux-sourcecodes.. why not taken from the linx-sourcecode ROS
is GPL and opensouce linux is the same..
