Although I like this module a lot, if it is going to be in contrib,  
it has to behave like a contrib module.  That is, it should not patch  
drupal.css, but use its own css file inside the module's directory.   
And, it should not have a name that conflicts with a core module.   
This will cause a bunch of problems and support issues as (non- 
developer) users stumble across it and try it.  If you want to leave  
it as is (patching core and conflicting with a core module), it  
should stay in your sandbox.

I suggest making it a true contrib module by changing the name of the  
cvs directory/module and accessing the css from the module's  
directory.  This way people can use it until it -- hopefully -- makes  
it into core, replacing archive.
