Hi guys!

I'd love to help with this. You should probably open up a Design Team
ticket [1] or if you can't (I'm not sure about the permissions) just
tell me and I'll do it myself.

I must admit I don't have much experience with Glade, but I'd like to
get to know it better so this seems like an opportunity.

At the very least I will be able to provide some artwork for you guys. :)
