Do note that you can customize the desktop theme, picking and choosing 
parts from all installed themes if you want.  I've not actually played 
with it too much myself, but I know the "customize" tab is there, and 
I've looked at it enough to have seen the list of components that can be 
switched out between different themes.

But while that does allow you to mix and match, whether it'll allow you 
the /perfect/ mix for your needs is still to be seen.  Of course you 
could hand-edit the themes, combining them yourself into your own theme, 
or simply altering one specific parameter for one theme as I did at one 
point, but while people obviously do it or there'd not be so many themes 
on kdelook, hand-editing at that level is beyond where even most gentooers 
are comfortable treading (at least if they don't have to), I think, and 
I'm no exception.

OTOH, maybe you'll soon have your own theme or theme variant up at 
kdelook. =:^)
