Ah, indeed.

Yes, the text there is all described in "tools.h", which can be given
#ifdefs, or simply replaced with new versions for the target locale.

The text for the stamps (e.g., when you click the moon, it says something
about the moon) are in .txt files that live with their respective .png's.

One can presumably have a "tuxpaint-shapes-space-en" package,
a "tuxpaint-shapes-space-es" package, which differ only in the .txt files.

Good point. :)  I wonder if it'd be inappropriate to keep the current
"bloo-woop!" thick, bubbly paint sound effect if I change it, though. :)

Hehe :)  I guess I should say "3-10 year olds" is the target audience.
Sound good?

(Of course, I met a kid yesterday that's 2-and-a-half, going on 6.
Too bad I don't have a laptop.  I bet she'd've dug it.)
