Sounds good to me, as long as the icons follow the general look of the
I'm free to discuss coding details of getting it mainstream.

With the summer coming to a close, I'm not going to be making regular
changes. Soon it's back to school, for me. Although at the moment, I'd
need more feedback to determine what improvements are needed.

I think it would be a good idea to move it to KDE SVN, if that makes
integration easier. At the moment, I'm the only CC developer doing the
KDE work for liblicense, and I already have a KDE SVN account. Moving
it to KDE wouldn't be any trouble (for me).
