I propose to stop this discussion, and do what we always do: let those who
code, decide.

If a theme is ported, and of good quality, let it be there as an option. I
don't think having themes as an option would ruin the KDE experience... Most
ppl don't even notice the diff between plastik and oxygen (at least, my ex
didn't) so it's not that big an issue.

Maybe (maybe) put the themes in a special 'kde-artwork' location, I remeber
debian had such a seperate package...
