According to MSDN, uxtheme.dll provides the api necessary to do 'themed'
stuff, it is something like 'gtk engines'.
There are 2 points beside this kind of 'theme implementation':
1. Windows XP (TM) ships with 2 comctl32.dll, the classic old style one
(version 5), and the new 'Visual Styled' (but non redistributable) one
(version 6), so we need to handle this situation because the whole ROS
will be '(freely) redistributable', then there is no need to have 2
2. Having in mind we should provide a new api (uxtheme.dll) to implement
themes and that we MUST make use of it if we want themed stuff,
comctl32.dll should be writen from scratch using uxtheme's api (having
uxtheme previously implemented, obviously)
