  I can build it without the overhead..  They just won't be able to move buttons, etc..  ;-P  Basically, instead of using REAL buttons, you use bitmaps that use onclick/onover, etc..  Then allow them to configure it to use different bitmaps, otherwise, uses build in ones, which, if done correctly, only add like 20k to the final..

  I CAN say that this will NOT be in the WinJab, which is the default client that I'd like to point out, is ready for CVS checkin.. ;-P  CVS fixed yet?
