IThemePainter is in Winforms, whereas the MDI drawing code is in Xsharp, two 
levels below Winforms.  It isn't practical, or wise, to have Xsharp calling 
up to Winforms.  This behaviour will be consistent with MS, which provides no 
way to modify the appearance of window borders, be they top-level or MDI.  I 
realise that you'd like to theme everything, but we have to draw the line 

Anyway, the MDI border drawing code will be ripped out, thrown away, and 
re-written in the next few months as I gradually make Xsharp capable of doing 
real window management at the top level.  What I've done so far is OK as a 
quick hack, but it won't stand up to the rigours of a full desktop.  So I 
wouldn't get too attached to how it currently looks or works. :-)
