[Mono-winforms-list] Theming in MWF

As I know MWF uses a single theme and it draws everything using
System.Drawing and does not use any native control representations.

On Windows it is possible to let the system draw controls. If it possible
under X11 and OS X as well?

On Windows there are system colors that could be used to color controls. Is
the something equivalent on X11 and OS X?

The problem with custom theming is the connetcion interface. Maybe we should
add a new assembly that exposes connection interfaces. And we could add some
configuration settings to specify themes.
