And then giving them up _in spite_ of their looks if they don't work. I 
am not talking about specific distros here, just pointing out that the 
"Shinyyyyyy!" feeling is not long lived if the system is not working.

I agree with all you suggest in your mail though: so decide on the 
theme, icon set etc, anything that usually lives upstream and then 
because of popularity gets packaged. But let's not start packaging theme 
after theme which change every week, it's too much development burden.

This is what I have been saying in dapper and edgy as well:
let's have an artwork on which people agree and only then bless it as 
official xubuntu artwork and upload it. But there never seems to be 
consensus and we stick with what we have, at least we don't regress.
