+---------- xfaces questions ----------

| even if the picon is named `face.xpm'?

Yes, many xpm files in the picons databases use the transparent color, so
you get effective shaped icons without having to have -shaped filenames.

| - The source looked a bit old, is xfaces actively being maintained?

Not to my knowledge.
