GWT 2.1 Visual Themes

is there any recommended way how to build a new GWT Visual Theme based
on ClientBundle and CssResource? According to 'Developer's Guide - CSS
Style' using 'Including Style sheets in the Module XML file' is now
The current visual themes for example
com.google.gwt.user.theme.standard.Standard are using style sheet
reference in module xml file.
CssResource based styling is used only for cellview widgets and
NotificationMole widget. So in order to build a new visual theme I
have to prepare 'deprecated' style module to cover 'old' style widget
and prepare set of CssResource interfaces for all 'new' style widgets.
Is that correct?
It seems a bit inconsistent from my point of view. Is there any vision
or roadmap for that, e.g. all widgets will be rewritten to support
CssResource or it will stay as is now..
I have a little problem too with CssResource based styling, especially
generated class names. An external contractor given the application to
prepare a new theme is forced to generate css file, which requires
additional conversion from generated to real class names to
incorporate it back to the project.
I would like to hear your opinion on that.
