AOL - I agree completely. Data should go into the new (not yet created) data
section[1], and we should have the Debian window manager themes packaged.

[1] To FTP admins: this idea about 'data' section is an accepted proposal

Can the new section be set up soon after it gets included in the Policy
document? Are there any serious technical difficulties with it?
