speakign of which, i have new Oxygen art for the about: pages thanks to Lee 
Olsen and Nuno.

i have both the svg sources as well as png's broken out and am working on 
getting them in today.

for 4.1, assuming we can get some QSvgRenderer fixes in, i'd like to introduce 
a class that paints directly from the SVG file, much as how we do things in 
plasma these days. this will retain all the flexibility we currently have but 
with far nicer art and programmatic control; in particular we will be able to 
have a non-repeating pattern or picture in the the center body area and one 
will be able to use actual QWidgets rather than html if so desired.
