Note that the arrows will remain green, the GTK color, rather than blue,
the current GNOME color. The reason is that there is a bug in GNOME
which prevents the current theme from overriding the default GTK icons.
I have been told this has been fixed in GNOME 2.15 (which I assume will
appear to users in GNOME 2.16), but this is probably outside the date
that Emacs will be available.

By the way, if anyone has GTK experience, the Emacs code should be using
the GTK libraries to render the icons and only using our built-in icons
as a fall-back. That way, Emacs icons will pick up theme changes.

These things I learned during a short discussion with the GNOME
usability folks. They were also shocked that we were using XPMs instead
of PNGs which offer 8 bits of transparency instead of 1. Can anyone
speak to that?
