Apparently this is also a runtime problem. I've seen the Oxygen style and 
Plasma look funny on a SUNray box, where apparently XRender is not available 
but (tried to be) used, resulting in LSD-like coloring of lots of widgets. 
Not that it doesn't look cool, but it does not a match with the artistic 
vision either. :-)
