It's a bit different because it modifies windows with hacks, whereas I'm
modifying the wine source. It's an interesting idea, and the end result
is quite pleasing. Maybe he has some icons that I don't - but then it's
hard to be sure of the license there.

Hey! That's really cool. I guess this will get easier to use when
theming in wine becomes better implemented - for example when winecfg
gets a theme chooser. There is also some talk of creating a wine-qt and
a wine-gtk theme bridge, which would automatically take the system theme
and paint wine with it. That's a long time in the future.
