This might be an idea, yes.

All in all I find this very cute. My main point of criticism is that in 
Konqueror most of the interesting button labels are invisible till rollover. 
I would expect "+" to be on the left (your opinion, anyone??) and not on the 
right, so I clicked on "-", and as the "-" is visible only on rollover, I 
noticed the mistake only when I got a black-only image as "best match" to 
something that contained no black at all...

You want me to put up a link to your soft at ?

Is the translation of this "'tüllich" in German?
