White Tie is a fantastic artist!

We would like to eventually add such skinning capability in the future, though we will only do it once:

a) we're out of/have less of big functionality items that need implementing
b) it doesn't harm performance when not in use (i.e. if you want classic ui, it won't cost you much more than the additional disk space)

Point a) might take a while, as we have pages and pages of things to do!
As for b), it becomes an interesting engineering challenge, as typically these things involve tradeoffs between featureset (alpha blending vs masking, etc?) and performance.
