Ah, Also found it browseable online...

In any case, relevant code for those who are interested:

basically, the renderer is hard coding the look and feel in terms of
cairo objects. You won't be able to style them with external SVG
unless someone writes a styling engine. At least, that's what it looks
like to me. :)

Next step would be to talk to the gnome-game maintainers to see if
they want to enable skinning of cairo game objects in their code, or,
at least, in quadrapassel, but I would assume that skinning on all
apps would be a more useful and interesting endeavour.

Hope this helps!
