Please reply below the original post.

Yeah, agreed. Your idea is good, and we just have to wait for uxtheme.dll to
finish. But in the meantime is it ok for us to change the default colors?
Because the Win95 colors are just too... dull. And my "gradient colors for
caption bar" patch will make WINE's windows look nice if Win2K/XP colors are
applied... _IF_ my gradient-colors-patch will ever get accepted, because until
now it's not been applied yet... (but that's for another thread :-P)
