This theme looks nice, but it seems very similar to OS X icon theme (I
am not sure this is a good thing ^^).

Moreover, I don't feel really confident with dropping tango... Is this
theme as complete as tango? And is it actively developed?

I can take care of murrine and the murrina theme if everybody is ok to
have this theme as xubuntu gutsy default one (and of course, if it meets
the requirements for main).

Anyway, I think it would be better to test these themes (I am already
using a murrina theme, but not with graphite colors) before coming to a
decision. ;)
