It's not a solution. It's a temporary way of ignoring the problem.
It's the little broom you use to brush the problem under the rug.

Don't get me started about mozilla's native widgets. :)

I don't think he's "focusing" on mozilla so much as using it as a
primary example of what needs to be done in metatheme. Yes, I'm
going to call it metatheme. SO is arguably just as important as
OOo as well. However, we can never guess what new apps may emerge,
and will support themes. These things will have to be handled on
a case-by-case basis. And if galeon/mozilla is going to be a core
part of the desktop (as it has been proprosed, but I am highly opposed
to, and no, not just because I am writing a gtkhtml browser), then
mozilla does need the most focus at this time.
