That's the goal of the "gnome-art" app developer. I think they'll be
using straight-up tar.gz archives, so in theory it should work in
Gnome on any distro. If you think Canonical might be interested in
helping or sponsoring this project, I suggest getting in touch with
the author (whom I simply know as "miketech"). His site with contact
info is here:


I don't recall if this app is in Breezy or if I downloaded and compled
it myself, but it's current functionality seems to work great on my
Breezy demo box FWIW.
