* You can change the names and the order of the brushes by editing
* I am thinking about adding more backgrounds from
Do you think it is worth it or will the package become to big

If you are having any problems with the packages, please let me know.
P.S.: If somebody wants to become co-maintainer of the package, he is
more than welcome. I really would like to see a designer as additional
