Hey Martin!
I'm not sure I agree that the oxygen-style and tango-style clash that 
hard and we're slowly trying to move closer to the oxygen-style. The 
latest Firefox 3 stuff is a small step in that direction (+ our HighRes 
experiments [1], [2]).

And yeah, I would be rather happy if Livio's flames calmed down a bit 
too and really hope it haven't put the tango-project in a bad light. :/

It's also mega-important for HighContrast where the interface will be 
quite useless if hardcoded.
