Re: gsu (Was Re: More Political Stuff)

Of course there would still need to be some person/people who would have to
audit every theme.  Also, each user would then have to be sure that their
authentic, okay, safe theme file is up to date, otherwise they will get
warnings that they probably won't understand or what to do about them when
they try the newest theme posted to gtk.t.o  

The real solution would be to make theme engines run in a sandbox of some
sort. In any case theme security/signing is IMHO not worth the trouble.
