[wmx] Themes?Martin von Weissenberg

I was surfing on themes.org when the thought hit me: we need to make
wmx themable. It's actually very simple. You can already define
colors, fonts and pixmaps in Config.h, but how about putting all
theme-related defines (section III and parts of IV) in a new file,
e.g. Theme.h? When you want to save a theme, just put your pixmap(s)
and Theme.h into a tarball. If you want to install a new theme, just
expand the tarball into your wmx source directory and recompile.
BTW, I would like to see new defines for e.g. the color of the
(currently black) lines surrounding the window frame.
The whole edit-recompile-install-restart cycle is contrasting nicely
with the simple point-and-click themability of e.g. WindowMaker and
By the way, how many of you have been experimenting with different
fonts and colors in wm[2x]?
