'Clean' Navigation Button Plugin Set for PTP2

I'm really liking PTP2, but found myself missing a nice, simple, clean navigation button set. So, as a holiday project I whipped one up, based loosely on the iControl Bar style. It is easily installed so that it shows as a menu item in the 'Control Bar' sub heading in the 'Styles' tab (and thus can be saved as a preset). It works for my purposes quite well, and I decided that I'd offer it to the wider community. No warranty or anything, so TEST THOROUGHLY to ensure it meets your needs, YMMV. Feel free to use it on personal and professional projects (donations accepted, though, then I might make more sets! :)

The following paragraph was fixed in the next release.
(((Note: It was a chore putting things together and the one mystery I could not figure out was how to get the animated hot spots to show in the 'Point Spot' subheading under 'Spots Style' in 'Style' tab. I assumed that once defined in the XML that it would show up in the Icon pull down in Spots Style, but it does not. May have improperly defined in the XML (or conflicting with existing?), any suggestions on how to implement this would be welcome and I will update the package. Any other suggestions from the Kolor team on what I did/ didn't do right with this, my first plugin, would be appreciated.)))

Thanks to Gérald for some excellent suggestions. I have updated the 'Clean' nav package with the following changes:

◘ Hotspots (both still and animated) now show up in the 'Point' displays.
◘ Change to .tmpl file to remove a conflict when using multiple menus with 'Clean'
◘ Created a short YouTube install and usage tutorial video, available here: http://bit.ly/1gdITla
◘ Updated the blog post with the most recent package, currently v.91. You can get it here: http://bit.ly/1cGT1yB
