There's a difference between having somewhat of a 'different look and feel'
depending on audience, and something that 'makes your eyes hurt', aside
from the subjective taste issues that involves. XO would be a primary
example - Sugar's going to have a different look and feel before you even
get to any artwork, and Fedora specific artwork may be better off trying
to fit into that motif than coercing it to the motif we have now.
(Especially if the target audience is a different userbase/age group/whatever.)
