Well, the new Clearlooks entails both the Cairo-enabled
Clearlooks engine in gtk-engines and the Clearlooks theme
data in gnome-themes.  Both the engine and the theme data
have changed.  The theme data is probably setting a few
things that are new to the engine, but most notably, it's
using a brigher and more saturated set of colors.

Both the engine and the theme data are responsible for
point (b).  The engine is responsible for point (a).

Until somebody sits down and does measurements to show
that use of cairo in theme  engines is responsible for measurable
slowdowns, this is just guesswork.

Is there any way of reliably profiling gtk engines? As far as I am aware there is no way (short of actually placing hooks in the engine) of knowing when the engine has finished painting a widget or window. If anyone can think of a good way of profiling the speed of a theme, I would be very interested to know.
