Always art-work discussions on the list! if you want to implement a new
look just add it too the theme list and make it possible to select is
this new look. If you this new look is accepted it can become the
default one. But don't change to much at one time!!

BTW i like tango more because it is more complete and the thunar list
icons are smaller and better looking. Just my 2 cents!

Best regards,

Jelle
