Some hints/requests!

Try to create the tar over "mousetrap-0.0.5/" and not in a directory 
"0.0.5". That makes a lot more sense to packagers and seems to be the 
standard for packaging tarballs out there.

I'd really like to see alternative fore/background colors. White just 
hurts my eyes and sometimes I don't want to meddle with gtk color themes.

Apart from that I like it. I'll definately add it to lunar-linux'
