looks great! but should it really be on a tab? How about a 'Install
themes' button that opens that window? Not sure if that would be better,
but since we already have tabs in the appearance capplet, that would
mean getting tabs into tabs

right, but still, I like to select the individual themes (GTK, window
borders, icons, etc), since sometimes I don't like the whole theme

but users would need a way to create new themes by combining individual
GTK, window, icons themes, so are you proposing to remove the current
customization of themes in the appearance capplet?

Just to make it clear after my "critics": great work! :)
