This means a painting-programm doesn't need to follow the conventions, a 
writing-programm doesn't need to follow too, and my own KRec can be designed 
very special...
Either every programm has a standardized interface (available) or you have to 
invent the wheel for every application and (as a user) learn to use the 
different wheels.

Isn't that what the different "Interfaces"-Plugins are for???

No, I can change my KDE from win to cde to kde look in about a minute...

Write a plugin which has the skinnability you want!
