'Mintified' or 'mintish' Xfce/Gtk theme of Greybird: Greybird Mint

I took the original Greybird theme via git and modified some things to fit with the Mint icons I get used to or things that I do not like in the original theme.

Things that were changed:
- Hover color in panel and menus as well as progress bar and link color is now green instead of blue (to fit with the green Mint icons)
- Tooltips background color is now grey instead of black (I did not like the black ones very much)
- Panel color is now light grey instead of dark grey (same reason here)

You might also look at the screenshots to find out what I have changed.

[strike]I do not intend to update my archive file each time the original Greybird theme will be changed. For this reason I provide diff files that can be applied to the original Greybird theme. No graphics were changed. I will update the diff files so that they can be applied to the original Greybird theme, even when it has changed. However, I will not check the compatibility daily. So do not hesitate to send me a message if my diffs are outdated.[/strike]

Archive file now comes with a complete theme. Patching is no longer required.
