"The 3D icons in Motif are just chrome, but they certainly are *pretty* chrome!"
Chrome is distinguished from bells and whistles by the fact that the latter are
usually added to gratify developers' own desires for featurefulness. Often used
as a term of contempt and sometimes used in conjunction with 'fluff', "all the
fluff and chrome that comes with Motif".
