start the process for F9 theming?

I think that I understand a different thing:

I'm working into a Fedora wallpaper that should work for F9, and some of my
ideas are to making it alive :D (If the people was happy with the infinity
giving us the time... we could make the same transition of images on the
desktop but using something different as a pattern).

The window style... Can we ad some textures to menu bar? (Gnome and KDE)
like a 3D sensation?  I now that we could make something on inkscape looking
like a pipe and instead see the things up the bar this COULD BE SEEN as
inside... (but I'm not shure that if this is possible.... just saying what I
have in mind to develop for F9 AS PERSONAL WORK)

Menu, window... everithing.... we CAN make a new window style like 3D....
why don't we go for it?

Yes... Here on LatinAmerica (Venezuela) the patents issue is really big,
so.... (kind'a proposition) why don't we re-make a new style concept on the
desktop for Fedora 9? It could be the start for a longer way.
