Hi list!

I'm going to work to an update for the MokoFaen theme for QtMoko.  I'm
planning a few changes to it but I really would like to have some
feedback from the community.

Usually I just follow my taste, but I admit that my work sometimes
lacks beauty and functionality. So I'm asking you to give me some
hints, to tell me what you like, what you don't like, what features do
you want.

For now I found some aspects that I would like to change:
- The theme became heavy, if you use a GTA02 you can notice a less
   responsiveness of the system, compared to the default Finxi theme.
   I have to lighten the graphical elements;
- The theme became also "heavy" from an aesthetic point of view, maybe
   a more minimal style could be pleasant;
- In the home screen there are a lot of infos displayed, maybe they
   can be regrouped in a more efficient way, I'm thinking about
   something like conky [1] or conky-colors [2];
- After a series of test, at least on my GTA02, the use of the
   lock-screen button in the home screen causes several freezes. So now
   I'm using the power button to put my GTA02 in suspend and I'm going
   to remove the lock-screen button from the homescreen.

I know that theming is not a critical task, for me it's just an
amusement, but your opinions and help could be really useful.
