Well, we aren't exactly that amount over target, because paypal takes a cut of 
about 5%. We _are_ over the 3000 euro target, but I would really like to reach 
the 4000 euro line so Lukas can work for another month on Krita, fixing bugs, 
for instance.

Actually, we have a number of arrow shapes already in Krita, because we 
integrate all the vector shapes of Karbon. Maybe those are already enough?
