i agree. as long as the code doesn't crash or otherwise behave badly (such as 
horribly misrendering widgets) i don't see the problem of offering it as an 
optional installation which adds an optional style to the list in the control 

there is little point to having the ability to pick styles if people can't 
take advantage of it and there most definitely people who enjoy simpler 
styles or styles that remind them of systems they first used years ago. there 
is no harm in that at all, and by accomodating those tastes we keep in line 
with our own spirit of inclusiveness.

sane defaults, with the ability to mold it to your own particular brand of 
insanity. (just wait till you see my pink ponies wallpaper!)

that's probably the important bit: what we show the public.
