I'm aware of the scope of the project. The general design of uxtheme lends 
itself well to being done incrementally, eg. controls could be modified as 
support for the particular control is implemented, etc.
Also part of the API are a few functions (IsThemeActive & IsAppThemed) which 
will allow themes to be disabled in the beginning for theme aware 
applications until sufficient support has been built or if themes are 
disabled via config/registry.

First order of business tho is the headers
