There is a tradition in computer programming of making "easter eggs", 
i.e. hidden useless functions.

But for catholics (and orthodox christians), easter is one of the two 
most important holy days (in two words).

So I decided to add an easter egg on easter. Seems logical.

It allowed me to test some features.

(And it reminds me the things that are more important than Gambas).

Then I added other easter eggs on other important holy days. It allowed 
me to test other features: sound with GStreamer, transparent drawing, 

Of course, if you are not a catholic, you can be surprised by that! (if 
you are an orthodox, it will be the right holy days but on the wrong dates).

Why it starts crying today? It is actually both crying and smiling, 
because the day of the Ascension was both a sad and a glorious day.

And now that the IDE can run with Qt or GTK+, don't forget to tell if 
you have any crash with the music or the animations. Especially the 
sound, because with Gambas you can run GStreamer with anything (Qt, 
GTK+, SDL...), and it may not work well in some cases.
