implement all styles, so that UI explicitely using a specific style will look
ok using another theme; but in the case of the NeXT theme I don't think so, as

buttons use that style. The exact same UI, done manually on GNUstep, would
have square buttons, simply because the NeXT theme didn't have rounded buttons
