I think that we'll have to draw things by hand.  The API seems to assume 
Windows appearance and behaviour (big surprise! :-) ).  The only thing from 
the "theme" that may be useful is the color information (e.g. "the default 
background color is #XXXXXX").  I'm hoping to hook into XSETTINGS to get that 
information.  For more complex theme information, let's get that in "DotGNU 
Forms 2.0" once we understand the API better.

Working on it.  A few more hours and I should be ready to write a HACKING file 
for Forms.
