Personally, I think these error messages would never be seen by sensible
users, so it's not a problem that's worth spending lots of time one.
Well, unless the messages get shown in a pop-up dialog the large
majority of users will never know these existed in the first place.
Would the majority care or know what to do about a broken metacity
theme? I rather suspect the only reasonable dialog to display if there
is any problem with parsing a theme is basicly:
Failed to load theme. The theme file is corrupted.
It maikes little practical difference to the user whetever the file is
binary goo or xml, and you can't really give more helpful error messages
