(Clearlooks was not a clone of any other theme, it was its own nicely styled
fork of Bluecurve.)

Dude. Chill out. Dapper is very much in development, as is the version of
GNOME shipping in it right now. Clearlooks is currently in transition from
being GDK-based to Cairo-based. You have to EXPECT interesting problems and
bugs during changes like this in any development series...

Today's healthy dose of reality: Long time until April, at least if you're
counting in Free Software years. :-)
