Some doubts 'bout Revolution

No... I was thinking in Platinum... ;-)
After some time, users get a little tired about the look and feel of their
OSes (that's why exists skins modules for Windows and Linux). It would be
nice to change the look of my app without any effort.
One thing that I'm getting some problem is on buttons.
It would be nice if we could make buttons like the skins programs. Let's
suppose a PNG file:
+-+
!*!
+-+
A Skin program would divide a PNG file in a 3x3 matrix, then, apply the + on
corners, repeat -, * and - on center (H) and ! on vertical, mouting this way
a button (independent of its size).
Would be a nice addition to Rev a way to make a fixed 32x32 PNG and apply it
to a button (whatever the button changes in size, it will reorganize the
matrix making the graphic fit to any size without magnifications).
