Andrew: maybe some of the themes can be eliminated in the future or
compressed some way like you suggested.  Size is sometimes a concern
because of slower network download speeds when getting the new monthly

GG had to write code to use the ShapeWipes as Jpeg's instead of Png's.  The
jpeg compression is at 90% so that the additional ShapeWipes that RafaMar
provided could be added.  For those users who still want the png's, we are
going to tar them up and put on the website.  And I will add a "how to" use
in the Manual.  Basically all a user has to do is to put the png
alternative in the right directory to use it.  I looked at all of the shape
wipes and could not see any discernible loss of quality that should matter
in a transition.  The tar files for the 03/31 build varied from 55M to 69M
whereas previously on 02/29 it was 51M to 59M + that did not include all of
RafaMar's new ones.  Now as Jpeg's, all of his new ones can be included
with another increase in space usage.  Again, it is not the disk space
requirement that is of concern, but rather the download speed of some
