Question window manager questions and/or theme questions

I'm trying to either get a window manager that uses a specific theme or a theme for a window manager like gnome or kde that's centered around the scifi show, Babylon 5.

I found an old link on freshmeat ( but it's for windowmaker, which is dead if I remember correctly.

Question: Anyone know where I can get a Babylon 5 theme or manager for X11?

Question: If not the above, anyone know how to rip a windowmaker theme like the one at freshmeat to make a new one for gnome and kde?
