like having a drag and drop kioslave for (icon, colour, whatever)
theme installation also makes much more sense than the currently

this is a good point btw, in the screen shot i see there are
multiple directories for different font types. i'm not sure
if it will confuse the user but maybe a single directory 
would make more sense. is this possible craig?
