Given Carlos' explanation, I think there is some overlap, but there are
also some things Carlos is proposing which I am not doing. I'm mostly
concentrating on the widget drawing API and loading appearance
information from a configuration file.

Generally though, I would actually also favour removing a lot of the
widget style properties and instead allowing the theme engine more
control over the widget appearance. Apart from simplifying test cases
for each widget, it would be useful to "native" themes that try and
emulate the appearance of other systems (e.g. Windows or OS X). At the
moment the Windows engine has to set a bunch of style properties using
gtk_rc_parse_string(), which is not a very elegant solution.

Will do; apologies I couldn't make it this week.
