[K12OSN] Include IceWMCP in future releases?

This question is ostensibly for Eric, but I wanted others' opinions on the 
matter, too.  Is there any reason IceWMCP, the IceWM Control Panel, could not be 
included in future releases?  I use IceWM most of the time because of its better 
performance.  And I don't mind editing the menu and toolbar files by hand.  But 
it seems to me that a graphical tool for handling these things would make 
K12LTSP more accessible to a wider audience, particularly those who are averse 
to editing text files for configuration.  Mandrake for many years included the 
IceWM Menu Editor (IceWM ME), which I found to be convenient and a fun way to 
test new themes.  IceWM ME has now been absorbed into IceWMCP, which provides 
some additional tools.  Allowing admins, particularly those who are new to 
linux, an easy way to modify the menu system seems like a reasonable addition to 
K12LTSP, especially since Eric must manually add the IceWM to the stock 
RH/Fedora.  Thoughts?
