Right. But the idea is to have one style. Having different styles and
changing which one to use to change the engine would require more
complexity than already exists. So what I said may not be entirely
true, it's the most evident situation. The goal is to simplify all of
these settings.

I was going to do something basically the same as the widget style stuff,
and add some way to set properties in code. Though I know that the style
properties can be set in the gtkrc, and you have strong beliefs that this
is the One True Way (TM), I strongly believe that it isn't, and that we
need some way to set style properties for widgets, in code. To keep the
gtkrc minimal to a point, and to keep weird style properties for some
engines screwing with widgets when using other engines, if we go the way
I'm suggesting here, and having a gtkrc with settings for different engines.
