it looks quite good to me, only 2 things:
* someone said it was wrong to repeat the same string in the dialog and
in a tab, and we have 'Appearance' twice. Not sure if it is a problem
* cursor settings: maybe we want to have another combo box to select the
icon on the appearance tab?
* options: it says behavior and appearance (appearance again :-) while
it only deals with menus and toolbars. Shouldn't we just have 'Menus &
toolbars' there?
* sound themes: if we add these, we might want to add another tab

Apart from these, it looks great to me, so unless there is something
really bad against it, I'd vote for doing this.
