Mea Culpa. I really should have got the split grimoire discussion going
earlier, but I've been insanely busy the past months and haven't had the
time to sort out the ideas I have and properly put them together. There

ones for KDE or gnome may not be the best ideas for the reasons you
I promise to get my ideas out to the mailing list this week.
