Easily -- you just change the style sheet. This is a bit cart-before-the-horse
but the idea works like this. If you go to


the style sheet comes up. Make a directory named 'gopherchrome' and copy the
style sheet there (named gopherchrome.css). Season to taste -- the classes
and IDs should be pretty obvious.

To skin the icons, make .pngs in that directory named icnX.png where X is the
item type. (The difference is for URL-escaped itemtypes like ; which is
%3b -- name the that one icn3b.png, und so weiter.)

Any .css or .png in that directory is serve-able, incidentally -- just
follow the template above for the URL.

I had it "plain" before but I didn't like it as much, and this was easy to
implement without being heavy since the browser itself draws it.

There are a couple bug fixes I need to do and then I will generate a new
version for people's review.
