Only two of which are shipped in the Desktop release.

Okay, so now you guys have integrated all these things into the one module,
reducing the version number in the process, can you split them all back out
again like we (mostly) had it before? gtk-engines and the original versions
of the other themes (industrial, smooth, thinice, etc) were very clearly and
separately versioned until this happened. :-)
For now, I'm going to ship gtk-engines packages that include only metal and
redmond (given that pixbuf has moved into GTK+ itself), so this all ends up
being an unfortunate waste of your time updating and maintaining the themes
in one big module.
