Yes, this was one step along the path.  There's no rc or pixmap set
around that I can remember anyway :(

Yeah, Paul and most of the other devs are very open to ui issues and
have been extremely thoughtful about ardour's "face" and also helpful to
"themers".  One of ardour's selling points is it's "theme-ability" and
afaict Paul et. al. have not lost sight of that.

I'm psyched to get back to themeing post gtk2 ardour as I've found gtk1
to be (ehem) not the *best* toolkit to theme.  :)
