I believe that Sabayon's new kicker needs better theming done.
The kicker icon should not be a fixed size but the icons should adapt to suit different sized kickers, and the dark red and pink could be altered to more Sabayon colours. (They already look nice, but they could look nicer)
Also according to http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/2620
, the kde developers have branched kickoff and our ebuild and coding people will need to keep up with this, as apparently this branch makes kickoff easier to customise and theme.
As a side note can anyone post kickoff theming and configuration information and theming in this thread ?
