hm ... so instead of getting CSS issues addressed up stream (Girish has been 
*very* responsive) and/or fixing things with 10 line patches, we're going to 
end up writing custom proxy styles for everything we want to do? i understand 
that probably feels much more hard core and therefore makes one feel good .. 
but, it seems to me that addressing these issues upstream or patching things 
properly seems a lot more ... sane.

maybe that's just me though.
