But the point is (I think) that we decided that Debian *wouldn't*
package all those hundreds of GTK themes which contain no code ---
basically pixmap ones, also some thinice ones etc --- but that it
*was* appropriate to package the actual engines which contain code.

There is a tool lying around for automatically debifying themes which
contain no code.
