It would be great if we used such an unified theme too. I wonder if there
would be any trouble if
xubuntu looked very much like ubuntu as far as colors and icons are
concerned. I guess as long
as we have another default background and the mouse somewhere there will not
be a danger of
confusing xfce with gnome.

thanks. If you think, you could post and say that we too are very interested
in the outcome of the discussions and
would benefit from a unified approach to themes across derivatives.
I'll just start watching u-artwork through gmane myself.
