Themes also include config files, and the config file file format
varies, perhaps drastically, from release to release. Remember that
Enlightenment, in spite of being very usable, is still early alpha.
Until the "DR" disappears from the official version numbering, please
make allowances for this.

But don't worry too much about your decisions being cast in stone.
They won't be.  More like: your decisions will be cast in quicksand...

[e 0.14 will allow you to use directories as menu config files,
for instance, and while the current menu config file mixes imagery
and layout with menu names and actions 0.14 will have separate files
for these.]

You shouldn't need to make a separate imlib-gif because imlib never
needs to write files in gif format.  Unisys has already agreed that
free software can unpack gif -- it's only writing gif files that
has legal problems.

Any other questions?
