Description: The delightfully smooth theme (for example) looks much better as a gtk1 theme than a gtk2 theme. Many effects that are supposed to be applied are not (along with warnings printed to the console) because is built for gtk1 but not gtk2. At first I thought it was just a choice by the packagers so I put it in an AUR package "gtk2-smooth-engine" but now I'm convinced it's a genuine bug that this package has had for years.

Additional info:
* Version is: gtk-smooth-engine
* The gtk2 version was probably omitted because of deprecated functions that don't work anymore. However it makes more sense to FIX this than ignore it.

Steps to reproduce:
* Install gtk, gtk2 and gtk-smooth-engine.
* Switch to a smooth theme for both gtk1 and gtk2.
* Run a gtk1 app from the console and run a gtk2 app from the console.
This task depends upon
