Doing animations from a theme engine is not a supportable feature. 
To do animations you have to hook into the applications main loop, 
and that can interfere with what the application is doing. 

And guess who gets blamed if this breaks the application or just 
looks terrible ? (Hint: it is usually not the theme)
