Ok, stage 1.  Changing the look, theme-o-dream-o-rama style.

One of the goals in GTK was to keep the widget set small and 
efficient.  So how do we add this stuff and keep memory usage 
and such to a minimum?  I suggest we create a few example 
widgets of what we want to do as proof-of-concept that we can
do it without bloating the toolkit.  

How about we start with a button.  What things are going to need to
change to gtkwidget, gtkcontainer, gtkbutton, gtklabel, etc. just 
to get a button to look different?  How do we "plug" in the themes
so they can change at runtime?  Or do we need to restart the app?
