Is that going to be as simple as the current sed script for Gtk2?

Other major question would be: is the window manager ready for this?

It would be nice, but I would say that it wouldn't work well with light-themes, and also metacity and unity-window-decorator don't support dark metacity themes (only mutter and muffin do)

Muffin is a fork of Mutter for the Cinnamon desktop environment, since the Linux Mint team really like foods and spices.

The GTK+ dark theme works by just copying gtk.css from Ambiance to gtk-dark.css to Radiance. Can't yet figure out how to make the titlebar dark, though. This a just a preliminary upload so I won't mark as a patch yet, as it is experimental (and I used it off a beta version of light-themes from Precise as I haven't upgraded yet.

It doesn't work well with Ambiance though, the fonts are blurred. I don't have enough time to fix this for now.
