[gtk-xfce-engine] Gtk+3 Themes

GTK 3.4 is rather outdated. And I highly doubt that anyone will port themes
to GTK 3.4.

GTK3 themes seem to break every release, even though the amount of breakage
has been greatly reduced. So it's unlikely that anyone will want to port to
an older GTK3 version.

If you use Xubuntu, the default themes Greybird, Bluebird and Albatross
already support GTK3. And in the upcoming Ubuntu version, they have 2 more
GTK3 themes, namely Numix and Orion.

And about lightweight, GTK3 is heavier than GTK2, and themes aren't that
slow for you to notice a difference.
