I know that it already exists.

I just mentioned that we should consider to expose the theming interface
through a public interface.

I know that this would not be MS.NET compatible but we could use a
Mono.*.dll assembly to expose this functionality. Of course this assembly
could not be used on other runtimes because it requires Mono's SWF.dll.

Doing this would let developers to theme or skin their applications but
making them dependent on Mono.

I don't know whether it is worth to do but it is a possible solution.
