I have actually suggested to use Murrine Engine¹ quite a while
ago. However seems some people are confused with engine and theme. And
to be honest I haven't find a good document to clear this confusion.

With your support, I think Murrine Engine will be an excellent
substitute for the clearlooks engine. I'm all for this change.

But if FC7 is to use Murrine Engine, the package has to be in Core.
I hope the art team make a decision asap.
