Re: [wmx] Themes?

sure I guess that I would like to see things change every once in a while
too (despite my disposition towards the very things that can be themed),
after all If I am obliged to waste 5-15% of my screenspace, it might as
well be appealing.

To this end, I have multiple binaries of wmx using different combinations
of settings... I don't think themifying wm(x) is going to go any further
in that direction however, because as you yourself pointed out... there
are point and click alternatives already available.
