I've decided to start murrine-themes on launchpad (well, not me but a
good themer) for this reason: giving few example themes to show the
capabilities of the engine, where themers could start working by using
their gtkrc(s) as a base.
When the other project "gtkconf/murrine configurator" will be ready
(but you should ask the developers on launchpad and not me), editing
murrine themes will be a lot easier.

As I've said, documentation and some improvements for murrine will
follow, but at first I would try to get some money to buy a cheap
laptop. I'm a student, and I do not have the means on my own to buy a
new one. Partially from donations and some small jobs I hope to
accomplish this task before gnome 3.0 :)

At last, the murrine code is quite modular so there's no reason you,
community, should stop working on new mockups/widgets styles that I
may add in the future (when I'll have an eeepc, before gnome 3.0 i
hope :D).

Cheers cory!
