I forgot to ask, but is there anybody with GTK theme experience available to
help me stamp some bugs out of the GTK/streamline it a little? I know there
are several (more/less) simple fixes, I just have no experience in GTK (and
the fact that this even has a working GTK theme at all still shocks me)

Main issues right now are almost all related to dark panels, and customizing
some panel applets. I'm posting the entire contents of what I have on
Wikipedia tonight (with bug warnings on the GTK) aswell a things I need
done. Since final submission deadline is coming up (and burning my heels),
time is a bit too tight. Obi-wan-anybodyatallplease; you're my only hope!
Any help at all would be -really- appreacted, like, endlessly.
