Hardly. :P

Normally, these sorts of projects have a /usr/share/further/ which
contains site-wide data. This isn't so much an issue for further in
terms of images, 'cause it's only normally used by one person on a
machine, but even the configuration file shouldn't appear magically in
your home directory...

I need to make an "installer" like how the gimp does it. (Do you know
what I'm talking about? Try rm -r ~/.gimp-1.2 and running the gimp

The trick will be figuring out what the "default" configuration is.
I plan to write a GTK+ config program someday... maybe that'll be today.
