[lsb-discuss] Desktop APIs

Although GNOME and Qt are part of the LSB other toolkits are viable
options for applications. LSB compliance can still be achieved when the
toolkit itself is shipped with the application. For better integration
in such cases it would be nice if there were an API which allows the
retrieval of some basic look and feel parameters such as background
color and default font. This would allow an application using a
different tool kit to blend in better.

This might be a Portland Group issue and then become part of the LSB
once the Portland Group project API is stable and ready for inclusion.

Targeting 4.0 with this request.
