I agree that in larger applications it can be a fundamentally useful
thing to do, but I'm questioning the usefulness of implementing such a
solution and then expecting it to fit seemlessly on an every-app basis.
Maybe not so much the usefulness actually; it's more that I think the
benefits don't out-weigh the effort required to do this really well.

If you *really* want to change a user interface in a lot of the modern
Gnome apps, you can just fire up glade and edit the app's GUI visually.
You have to be careful not to change too many fundamental elements
though or the application may break.
