Kith Intrepid is an interesting concept, but that's the problem - it's a
concept. It has not developed beyond the mockup stage, and the actual
mockups focus more on what would be coded in Metacity rather than GTK! We
would need to see a sample application with actual widgets visible such as
"The Widget Factory" to really know the style and intent of "Kith".

As for the buttons at the bottom of windows - it's not possible with GTK, as
that area is reserved in applications (GtkStatusbar). This is another mockup
that requires a major architectural change to GTK (and many applications) -
and while it may be worth persuing, it's not likely to happen.

Having said all that, I somewhat like the colour scheme :).
