Thanks for explaining that; now I'll go and try them all out a bit more.

Yes, I think descriptions like you've given above would be nice.

As long as a theme has a continuing owner/designer, I guess it's best to
go through him/her, for consistency of the theme design.

In Finxi, I added a current pressure display (as e.g. "985mb") to the
top left corner of the homescreen.  Where do you think that would fit
best in MokoFaen?
