Comment(by Yorick):

 Replying to [comment:1 raster]:
 > the config in the updates removes the gadget as that is what was always
 requested by om's design department. the spanner was never meant to be
 available to the public and the whole config theme hack is just that - a
 nasty hack on top of a release of code that was not ready (an earlier
 release of illume was let out rather than the one i prepared), so you
 won't be getting the spanner back, UNLESS you literally rm -rf ~/.e/ and
 set up a new config of your own. right now ships with 2 config
 profiles - asu and illume. illume will get you what you want - edit
 /etc/enlightenment/default_profile to change that (even this is a hack and
 i will eventually make this redundant - but i suspect ASU (2008.08) will
 keep using it. FSO should continue with the cleaner mechanism when i get
 to fixing it all up.
 > so as such - that spanner was not meant to be in the release and it's
 simply a back door hack that doesn't work anymore. so i will have to close

 so they removed some functionallity withouth giving us a way to get that
 functionality back? What is the philosophy behind this?

 And are you guys planning to add the double-click/top bar size/icon
 size/framerate... conrig to the the settings app?
 If not: why not?
 If yes: why not wait with removing the spanner till it is implemented
 somewhere else?
