Hey Martin!
I'm not sure I agree that the oxygen-style and tango-style clash that hard and we're slowly trying to move closer to the oxygen-style. The latest Firefox 3 stuff is a small step in that direction (+ our HighRes experiments [1], [2]).

And yeah, I would be rather happy if Livio's flames calmed down a bit too and really hope it haven't put the tango-project in a bad light. :/
Some apps are using hardcoded pixmaps, but better are tangoish, than old-GNOME-1.x.

Hard-coded pixmaps are bad, if you keep fillings bugs about those, the
