Bug Description

I've been playing with Plank a lot lately, especially with making themes. Would it be possible to add an angle option in the theme file? It would greatly improve the theming capabilities of Plank, and we could make themes that look similar to Daniel Fore's Plank mockups, or even like Docky 2 themes.

Robert, yeah, exactly. :D

description: updated

Just an update on this; this would likely make the most sense to be decided/adjusted in the theme itself rather than an option in Plank, IMHO. I know in Docky 2 it was an option for the dock altogether.

In Docky it was a 3d setting. And it literally did a 3d transform of the dock background.

The hack you see in my examples above is just some simple changes to the 2d background renders.
