Now that the 1.0.8 release is out, maybe we can go back to this issue.

>From the previous discussion, we had:

Layout issues:

- components need to be able to provide size information to Tobago
when requested

Theming issues:


- Components need to support themes

Also, Trinidad supports theming (they call it skinning, I think) so
perhaps we can combine the best of Trinidad and Tobago theming designs
to come up with an ideal solution so that all three frameworks work
together.

[Possibly this thread should be broken up into a layout and a theming thread.]
