Well, I guess what I meant was (this could probably be gathered from the
src) say someone writes a new theme, but only decides to do the drawing
code in their theme and want everything else to use the default.  Is it
a requirement that a theme .so must implement every drawing routine?

good point.  Gtk should probably be able to exist on its own w/o any
additional .so necessary.

BTW, is it planned for the themability to be merged into the main gtk

be who can cram it down in, or who can do it in machine language. It
