    No No, a thousand times NO! I think we should go with the standard set
    in the nautilus docs, ie crux gtk+, and sawfish crux. IMHO this theme
    look so much more professional than microgui. But as Dan pointed out to
    me one day on IRC, theres a lot more to it than just the theme choice.
    For eg, not only is the the question of font size, but also color,
    screenshot size, etc. Check out
    /usr/share/gnome/help/nautilus-screenshot-guidelines/C/index.html on
    your system for what Dan did for nautilus. This could easily form the
    basis for a general doc on this. I also think we should go with drop
    shadows for screenshot's, I think it gives the docs a very professional

I thought that Crux was going to be depreciated for Gnome 2.0 since it's
so damn buggy!
