Hi, Ken

 Exactly my thoughts too.

I agree with that.

I think about several libs with backends and widgets. Like libPBI.so,
libPBIWidgets.so, etc IMHO libpcbsd should contain only general things like
new QProcess, Utils class, etc

About icons. Maybe the better solution is just putting icons somewere in
/usr/local/share/pcbsd/ . In that case we can change icon set 'on the fly'
without recompilation. We also can have several icon sets. Or even icon
sets from users.

PS Can we continue discussion tomorrow (or maybe later)? Seems like this
night will be hot in Kiev :(
