 Thanks,
   
Charles,
I have been trying to find out the answer to this question for quite 
some time now.

you would need to hide the theme elements for it but that wont make it not
use space as the space is always allocated for it. this is what om's design
wanted. they want those 3 boxes at the bottom of every screen. its part of the
design.

as such i should make all these things optional and probably into gadgets - i
just didnt have the time to before to do it properly.

With it being open I would have loved to have seen them modularize the 
entirety of it (including top/bottom bars. Maybe I want to move the menu 
to the bottom and remove the triple-box all-together? I'd like to see 
how to remove the bottom bar and use the extra space for everyday uses. 
Also illume-config doesn't allow me to set terminal keyboard as the 
default for texts so if the keyboard crashes (I'm using FDOM which is 
modified 2008.X) then it goes back to default instead of terminal.

personally i think more work should just go into good well structured code that
has all the things done right instead of pointless must follow the design
pixel-perfect to and fro's. make sure everything is done/.modularised right
(and that doesnt in e's case mean make everything a package - e is not
package-drive. it's config and module driven).

 Also illume-config doesn't allow me to set terminal keyboard as the 
 default for texts so if the keyboard crashes (I'm using FDOM which is

keyboard crashes? if keyboard crashes in illume.. that means e crashes...
