'Ia Ora' Mandriva theme

Last time the Mandriva theme was changed, it was for Mandriva Linux 9.1, with the introduction of the Galaxy theme. For the 2007 version, we elaborated a brand new theme, named Ia Ora (“hello” in French Polynesian), changing everything from window borders to widgets and icons. The new theme is simpler and lighter, more luminous, with several colors and an "iced" effect for outline windows.
