Indeed. I had said that I'd be willing to re-jig KGameTheme* but I agree a 
more flexible approach may be beneficial. Especially if it's getting the 
exposure that something used by plasma will get.

The people involved are spread across #kde-edu, #kdegames and #plasma (maybe 
even #ghns though most of those are in the other channels anyway) - all of 
which I frequent so if we want an ad hoc meeting, just give me a ping.
