The future for Idesk

The new plans for Idesk

After I read all yours comments and I thought what is the better way for the Idesk future. For that I have this new plans:

I will create two new options for the Idesk Project. I heard the better way for Idesk core is stay lightweight. I think the same. For that, I splited the project in two new options: –with-background and –with-menu. Both options will be available when you compile the Idesk source. Of course, the –with-menu option should be ready when the Menu on Click will be ready. This to let you can choose to have support either Menu or Background (or none). Obvious the binary size will be more small without these options. Idesk with this will be more modular.
Finish the support for Menu on click for reconfiguration the icons options (Properties: caption, delete, sort, command and change icon). Taken the originally themes and pixmap. All just with X11 libs.
Support for Vertical text labels. For Caption and Tooltip.Caption. It will be nice.
For now I leave for next versions this:

Support for composite extension from Xorg.
In addtion, and for Debian users I will create two new packages called idesk-menu and idesk-background.
