aye. on the TODO. why do u think i did all that e_fm work? fm2? its just for
that purpose. right now it only have a fully functional list mode and... its
what is behind the file selector and lists of themes, wallpapers etc. it
handles all that. the idea is to get it right within limited contexts then
expand its functionality until i do an icon view mode and then finally one
flexible enough to whack onto the desktop. its already underway and on the todo.

he wants a windows style main menu with "windows xp" as a big vertical banner
down the side of just that main menu. i.e. he wants menu styles. not hard to
add - just see no point in doing it at the moment with a lot of other things
yet to do :)
