Some suggestions from Miguel and Paolo on IRC (Miguel would really like to drop
MWF's dependency on GTK+):

* Write a GtkRc parser in C# to get colors
* See if there is a standard means to share system/default color between gtk
and qt, and use that
* Run a small external program:

<miguel_> The bottom line is: I always hated that WIndows.Forms loaded Gtk+
just for this
 I would even write a C program that dumps those colors
 And check some kind of theme-stamp of sort
 If there is no ~/.config/mono/whatever.colors
 Run the program, and then load the colors
 And compare that against whatever X property tracks the theme (if we even do)

This last idea would allow us to use GTK+ in the external program, making the
task a bit easier than writing a GtkRc parser (we would only have to parse our
own, simpler, file).  Miguel and Paolo seemed to favor this approach.
