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.
