I too am wondering about the technical aspects of the Human theme/ 
engine. I've worked out a possible future theme for Human before  
Incoming#head-f092ea306a546788b86b8227a87ef7faa5ba78de - direct link  
to picture here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Specs/ 
action=AttachFile&do=get&target=michielgtk3.png - it's an early  

Of course, what I've made is only a suggestion, but if it turns out  
that some would like to see some of those things in the final version  
of the Human theme polishing, we're left wondering whether it's  
possible at all to do such changes.

I myself still know nothing about making themes. I made that mock-up  
hoping that someone would pick it up and make it into a real, working  
theme in case the need is there.
