XFCE missing the ability to change colors of borders on the fly

I recently switched to XFCE in light of the fact that Gnome2 and Metacity are being deprecated.  I've managed to arrange things the way I like it, but have found one severe limitation in configurability.  Unlike with Metacity, it appears to be impossible to change the colors of window tops, sliders, and so on.  I dug through the theme directories to figure out why.  The answer is that the various window decorations are made up of image files.  The colors are embedded in those files.  I don't know if this was done for speed or what, but it probably makes it impossible to change the colors without a complete rewrite of how themes are created.

Is there any work being done to allow for color tweaks of the sort I'm looking for?
