Oxygen theme is intended to replace Ia_Ora one as it's a big work to
maintain our own theme. BTW it needed to be renewed. Oxygen is for now
the only one available under gtk and qt apps and gives consistancy
between both kind of apps.

Oxygen is actively maintained and one of the maintainers is using
Mageia. So we still have bugs inside that should be fixed soon.

Finally oxygen-gtk3 is now upstream so it should help a lot also for
long term maintainance
