I've moved all configuration for my pipe-menu apps to ~/.config/ob3_<app>/. 

The first one I did was just ob3_theme, and that had only one file. But since there's more than one, almost all storing some kindof resource, I figured it would be best to get 'em all outta ~/.config/openbox.

If anyone uses these, make sure you move your configs, especially for ob3_theme:

ob3_wall has been updated to denote the currently selected wallpaper with an arrow, and a Clear Cache menu item has been added to ob3_headlines.

On a related note, anyone have ideas for other pipe-menu apps?

I thought about an openbox configuration menu thingy, but it would pretty much be limited to toggles, and writing out the configuration could be a problem. So I'll just leave that to obconf. :P
