Those path dirs look like a solid step away from any cross-platform
theme unification. But I guess thats a different matter all together.
Also, it seems like a licensing nightmare waiting to happen with mixed
licenses in 1 file. Im sure its been done before, but I wouldnt touch
that with a 10m barge pole.
BUT, if it works, it works. And I do like the cross-desktop idea.
