Clean work. But I would prefer tabs or a sidebar instead of having
separate dialogs (window management hassle). Have one page with the path
plus what is on "Theme Settings", but perhaps call it "Properties".
Other pages: "GTK", "Metacity" and "Export".

For the content of "Theme Settings": try labels on the left.

On "Metacity Settings": "Title parts order" needs explanation right in
place or an interface where you can move blocks around (most likely too
complicated to code to be worth it, though).

You would either have to remember the date of last modification on
export, or keep a copy of the last export around for a comparison.
