[Chandler-dev] Styles in Chandler

I'm working on a plan to unify how we handle styles in Chandler. The
goal of this project is to both create a central place where we can
define and reference styles (fonts, borders, spacing, etc) and to allow
designers to adjust the look of Chandler without having to have a
specific knowledge of Python. I've put up a first draft describing my
plan at http://wiki.osafoundation.org/bin/view/Projects/StylesProject.
I'm currently close to checking in code to read and set font styles in
Chandler which will show in more detail what I'm hoping to achieve
I'm particularly interested in hearing any specific styles that people
would like to be able to customize. wxWidgets allows for a certain set
of out-of-the-box customization, but part of this project is going to be
adding functionality to wx. To that extent I would appreciate feedback
as to where to direct most of that energy. Currently I've heard the
most requests for borders on blocks that are different on each side.
Any other suggestions for things that you would like to be able to tweak
easily would be much appreciated.
