Why the hell does this need the involvement of source code? This is like
helping the wizards who are unaware of what it was like to be an apprentice.
Most musicians don't know anything about computers, I dare you to find some
who do. Most artists don't know anything about computers.. I dare you to
find some who do. Same with video professionals.. While they still may know
something about electrical engineering and designing a NTSC black generator
from the ground up, you are not going to find a common ground in the code,
or with puting requirements on people, to write source code. This is totally
unacceptable, and this project and others will die with this approach. This
is why Linux sucks and Ubuntu needs to be different..

What is the UBUNTU motto?  Linux for human beings.

Consider the zip idea I mentioned.

For anything that needs code, we could get packages that add special widgets
and such.. Theming is really just data.. So why isn't it as simple as that..
Don't give me a lazy coder excuse.
