Sorry! Too much typing, not enough coffee. I meant that I tried to get
her to work on *Echo*. Most of the critiques of Echo were distilled from
her response.

It really is just a *little* bit. I think we'd all agree that making a
completely new icon theme is a tremendous amount of work, and Echo
really is an impressive achievement.. with a few minor problems.

But. Those minor problems are spread all over, and it's going to take
some time to work them out. I'd still like to see Echo shipped in F10 -
perhaps we could ship with a couple Fedora themes: Fedora, Fedora-Echo,
etc. But I don't feel good about making Echo the default just yet.
