And as it stands, I am going to keep the app authors ability to override
the gnome default. Seeing as they already can with the API and as Jody
says applications will often look butt ugly. Personally, I think option
c (in my original mail that started this) would have been a better, if
harder to do idea, but no-one seemed to care about it, so I'm not going
to bother with it.
