we need coherency between the desktops so we need the same default
theme for gtk and kde apps.

This is why i propose this :

KDE => Oxygen
GTK 3  => Oxygen-gtk3
GTK 2  => Oxygen-gtk

We can't use ia ora anymore for mageia  2 because we would need to
recode all the theme for gtk3 so better leave it in peace and use a
new one.

As a gnome packager i started to package oxygen-gtk3 and i will work
to have it usuable in our gnome 3.
