I noticed some of the geometry is slightly different, but I just thought
it was gtk3 being libgnome.  I don't test gtk3 much (and I don't know
that much about gtk theming), so I wasn't aware of the deprecated

But that's it!  After finals end, I am going to look into converting my
favorite gtk2 theme (Bluecurve) into gtk3 theme.  I am tired of ugly
and/or broken gtk3 themes.

Does anyone off the top of his/her head know of any good tools or guides
for converting gtk2 themes to gtk3 themes?
