I've just tried to start several non-sugar applications(gnome-terminal,
gimp, ooffice) and it looks now not so bad as I thought before. If we
fix launcher related issues and maybe set gnome theme to something
non-sugar(sugar theme looks ugly for regular gnome applications) and we
can stop "sugarizing" applications just by tweaking window
sizes(tuxpaint, gcompris) and start .desktop applications and 0install
packages as is.
