I already suggested this before and I do so again. Xfce comes with
about 100 pre-historic themes. Ugly. The theme folder should be
cleaned up like ubuntu and leave no more than 10 good looking themes
choices. Package all the murrina themes instead because everyone likes
those ones. With good reason.
