To be honest, I don't really like Nodoka (/Ducks) - plus, while I did
find a good base for a Clearlooks theme made for Ubuntu (/Ducks once
again), I didn't really find anything that was even close to looking
like Nodoka. (Goes to check again)
Plus, at least for now, I rather have one theme across all platforms.

OK. /-1 on the main package idea.
Though, I should add that:
A. icewm comes by default with a number of rather basic themes .
B. The default theme is rather... no-so-pretty. (RedHat Linux 4 anyone?)

Lets try it again.
Assuming that my theme can auto-locate the distribution's logo and use
it. What's wrong with that? Legal issues aside, shouldn't icewm/CentOS
look somewhat different than icewm/RHEL or icewm/Fedora?
