I think for gtk2 we are probably going to stick with Clearlooks. 
Clearlooks is getting some features that give it the glossiness Murrine 
has, and it's also the GNOME upstream theming engine. Andy Fitzsimon put 
together a Murrine theme that has very very nice Fedora colors, and I 
think he's working on porting it to Clearlooks.

Well, I think there are some working on Echo. I'm not really involved in 
that, though. I think I've mentioned before I like some of Andy 
Fitzsimon's ideas around using Tango as an upstream and applying styles 
to it [1].
