Can I suggest "Cappuccino" as (meta)theme name?
      * It's totally insane :-) 
      * It's not a trademark (I hope) :-| 
      * It's the color scheme of my breakfast: milk with a coffe squeeze

On my wish list for GNOME themes there is provide 3 or 4 different color
scheme for each engine. Of course hidden in the details dialog.

BTW There is a patch against gtk-engine in latest garnome. Is it relevant?

BTW2 Should Clearlooks use cairo if GNOME 2.12 will depend on gtk-2.8 ??
Instead GDK or similar to draw lines, I mean. Of course maybe I'm asking
