Actually, the question grew out of a much more basic one, which I
asked on the GNOME list and was told, why don't you build it yourself?
 (I now have many answers for that one!)

What I was originally looking for was the location of the gnome config
file where I could manipulate the default colors in my windows (I
really don't like gray).  I poked and googled around some, but there
are SO many gnome files I was unable to locate the one that contains
this config....
