In the meantime IE7 0.9 is out, which doesn't need the src folder
anymore. I will take care of upgrading it in the trunk (well, it's
actually remove and add).

IE7 get's smaller and smaller with every release. Version 0.9 is less
than 50kb zipped. I think it's ok to ship IE7 with plog considering the
size of a plog package of 2.6mb. (Even more since we are providing
"upgrade" packages...)

If IE7 would be packed with the templates that need it, this could
result in a rather big overhead for plog hosters that allow the upload
of custom templates for their users.

The main reason, why IE7 is already packed with plog is because we would
like to encourage the development of standards compliant templates. We
have template guidelines in our wiki stating that templates should at
least be xhtml compliant - even better xhtml strict. Asking this, strong
usage of CSS is automatically implied. Thanks to IE7 developers don't
need to write bad hacks vor IE and can still use CSS2/3 in their
templates. (i.e. max-width/min-width *just work* in IE if you include IE7)

BTW: IE7 is linked on the front page of the wiki. Any corrections (bad
english) are appreciated.
