heh no your theme is off by a little (or a lot depending) on your DPI,
things will over lap, text will be cut off, etc.  All themes are
supposed to be done using a 100dpi display to ensure consistent
appearance across all systems.  Not being at 100dpi when you build you
theme leads to all kinda of uglyness in the themes.  Though if you
resused the various layouts in the *ui.xml files then you're probably
ok since the ones that ship with Myth are laid out using 100dpi.
