I guess we could ship two themes. Where it would be either:
 * A modified "Clearlooks" and a "ClearlooksStable" theme
 * The normal "Clearlooks" and a "ClearlooksTest" theme

Where the first option would be the default during (parts of) the
unstable release cycle. Should distributions change it and ship the
normal "Clearlooks" theme then the "ClearlooksTest" theme could still be
build and shipped.
This way, users can switch to the testing the theme if they want to.


I'm for the Clearlooks and Clearlooks stable.
If we will do in that way, maybe someone will use the testing one (because it is default).
Otherwise this is totally useless ;) Who on earth will fetch the appearance applet and decide to use a broken (because the dark one will have bugs) theme? Maybe me, you benzea, and thomas ;) Quite useless, isn't it? =)

That's IMHO, of course.
