I just "reread (fast)" that thread and my impression is that noone
argued against "attracting graphics designers". A few people explained
why it is like it is etc. but I don't think I saw a single post
opposing. (Then I am not sure we need that much "graphics" as in bitmaps
- most of the UI are "drawn" using Balloon)

[BIG SNIP (based on agreement on everything Doug said :-)]

Perhaps we should just concentrate on having "Looks" as modules that
people can pick and choose from. We will probably need one default
though that most of the developers make sure works and (as now) have a
few preferences that give enough "tweak freedom" for most people to feel

And in that area I think we are good as it is - we are making good
progress - small changes here and there is popping up all the time.
