that's not part of e/illume - it's a quick and simple toolkit i am writing

that's been in illume for a long time... i just made it purtier :)

yes. but right now won't be doing major surgery on the layout code. just need
to clean up all the quick and dirty hacks done in the name of "implement what
the designers want" and abstract everything properly in the code so it plugs in
where it should nicely... when that's done, the rest should drop into place
wonderfully :)

why top right as opposed to top-left? does it matter? as such the close cutto
n consumes the entire space that the visible shelf region has (just slid down
) - just the icon uses a sub-section of it, but the "hit area" is large. (and as
such the theme is able to just do this - no code changes needed).

right now i'm not doing radical changes like that (as such that's simply list
view mode for the filemanager - a toggle option in the code).
