personally, i think the asu theme (the stock one installed on the
freerunner) blows, and you'd be best off switching it for something
ore useful - there are plenty around on the web. the illume one,
included on the phone, doesn't have that bar in, and does include the
decent keyboard, and the wrench for further config of illume

have a look on the wiki for how to switch:

there is a way to edit the asu theme, but it involves decompiling the
.edj file, which in itself requires installing a mountain of software,
editing it and then recompiling. it's time-consuming afaict

info on editing .edj files, courtesy of joel newkirk:
"1 - edje-decc to decompile the theme back to config files and images and
what-not, manually edit the aforementioned parts, and recompile with
edje-cc.  These two tools should be available in your friendly package feed
for your Freerunner as 'edje-tools' IIRC, and possibly for your desktop

2 - edje-editor.  I've installed e17 from CVS on Ubuntu using easy-e17.sh,
(http://omicron.homeip.net/projects/#easy_e17.sh)  did so under my vmware
development environment.  Edje-editor comes with the works in that case, I
don't know how available (or recent) it is in prepackaged binary form,
however.  It's important to keep in mind that the editor (and indeed E17
itself) is not finished at this time.  It works, quite nicely in some
regards, but has some flaws and some distinctly missing features.  (like it
can't remove a no-longer-used background image from the .edj file, that
currently requires manual intervention)

If you're interested in using the editor, check out
http://wiki.enlightenment.org/index.php/Edje_Editor and the blog post I've
been working on the past few days at http://jthinks.com/retheming-with-edje
for an introduction to things.  (my blog post is documenting my recent
efforts retheming the dialer within SHR, though as I point out in the
article the process applies equally to anything utilizing Edje, such as the
launcher and top shelf)  Also check the 'EFL Documentation' thread running
the past few days.  (EFL=Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, and includes
