yup. see gadman module :) already works. problem is gadman "relies" on a 2
button mouse (ir right mouse for control) - that needs fixing/changing so it
can would with 1 mouse button. :) but in principle it works. it does conflict
with illumes launcher - but.. i intend to split that off into a gadget and use
gadman anyway :) (and improve gadmans' layout so things scale properly or
position irrespective of resolution/aspec/screen setup). it's not perfect atm.

that's why i'm not going into making the launcher better - it needs splitting
out and other stuff first structurally :)
