Some more comments before I move on to something else:
- It would be much more readable to use enumeration and named values
in the rc files rather than cryptic integers:
glazestyle = 1 # 0 = flat hilight, 1 = curved hilight, 2 =
menubarstyle = 2 # 0 = flat, 1 = glassy, 2 = gradient, 3 =
menubaritemstyle = 0 # 0 = menuitem look, 1 = button look
menuitemstyle = 0 # 0 = flat, 1 = glassy, 2 = striped
listviewheaderstyle = 0 # 0 = flat, 1 = glassy
roundness = 5 # 0 = squared, 1 = old default, more will
Murrine Configurator is solving this problem.
95% of users use Configurator to Configure their themes, so there's no
problem related, and probably it will be a problem makin the opposite.
I think that with strings people may write mistakes in typing and
integers prevents this.
Another thing is that with "integer" i can make >= == <= comparations
in the engine so i can enable/disable features in a simple way.
- While these knobs to tweak are certainly nice, the one thing that
most people want to tweak in a theme are the colors. I would
personally be much more interested in themes which make use of
the new symbolic color mechanism in GTK+ 2.10 to create
When there will be a GUI (i.e. gnome 2.18 will probably features this)
then I will certanly manage that improvement, even with you if you know
how to manage it in the right way! :)
