[Gtk-sharp-list] Theming

I have been debating this very same question, my current plans are to 
specify a theme I supply for Windows rather than relying on the default 
theme and to specify the images if want for the actions. Initial tests 
work really well but that is just a prof-of-concept and nothing more I'm 
sure there are many problems waiting to appear.

.I have the same problem I can count on the themes in Linux to help with 
appearance but on the Windows side it doesn't work too well, because it 
would rely on users actively seeking out and installing themes.

I look forward to where you are going with this.
