Now, *that* would be great! We only need to make the gdm a little
prettier. I myself think that it's a good idea to use plain gtk in there
against standard background, but there's one thing that's kinda missing
- window manager. The "window" in the dialog looks a little strange,
because it does not have any borders and it's just plain rectangle.
Rounded corners and simple border (note, that I mean border only - no
window caption) wouldn't hurt IMHO.

Generally, I dislike themed lock dialogue (but don't like the look of
the unthemed one either), usually it gets a little too fancy and not
much usable. I don't think themes are well fit for such dialogues...
