[ubuntu-art] Some Themes Ideas

The Deviant lines theme looked really good, a very original design that
integrates well and has a nice clean appearance. It's also nice to see a
theme that doesn't have very chunky borders which just waste space and make
the interface feel a lot more chunky. I would in this theme prefer to see a
larger title bar text (for accessibility) in exchange for less wasted space
at the bottom - I think something could be done with this theme to make it
work well for a possible alternate theme for Ubuntu to ship: something that
is unusual and original but not sci-fi and old fashioned.
