 I think we picked up André's theme because it was consistent and rather
 complete.  It was nice to have it around for the technical
 implementation of the desktop-base integration, and we learned a lot of
 it (for example the gdm requirements, the non-support of some SVG
 variations in KDE etc.).

 Now, I'm happy if we ship etch with this theme or with another better
 one; I think there's still time to update desktop-base with new data
 files, even if I personally don't consider this to be necessary (IOW:
 it's cosmetic and not risky, I don't care one way or the other).
