Sounds good! I guess a lot has changed since I started working on
Do you want to take a shot at converting it over to using a QML file for
the theming? I tried to make sure that the theme stuff was kept seperate
from the bulk of the program, so I do not anticipate any major issues
with the conversion process, but it will take some time for me to read
up on QML and get familiar with it.
We are in the middle of a theme contest for PCDM at the moment, but I am
thinking that we can still take those themes and "up-convert" them to
QML once PCDM has been switched over.
