I think Chris makes an excellent point.  Though we need "something" as
an interim
solution, and want it to look OK and be reasonably consistent/compatible
GTK+ themes, etc., it seems to me that this ("panel theming")  is
something we
should put on the list of things to plan/design in the future; and I
that it's potentially important/visible enough that it will take some
time and thought to "get it right".
