I'd like to add it, but not as default theme. This way it gets more exposure, 
doesn't break anything and makes the artists team somewhat happy. They do 
have a say in this kind of decisions, to a degree where we just have to trust 
We did indeed exempt artwork from the freeze at least partially. It is very 
late, but this way we minimise the possible negative impact and yet give the 
users something extra...

Can we settle on adding the Oxygen-cursors non-default?
