Why doesn't Winterboard work like Customize to reduce lag?

    I just remember customize actually changes the icons and wallpaper files so that it uses no extra battery. Why doesn't winterboard do this? I might actually theme the files myself just so I reduce lag and save battery. I only really want one theme, so I think I may do it

    Ideas?

    You won't save much battery, since MobileSubstrate and WinterBoard hardly use any.
    Also, WinterBoard doesn't theme things like Customize because it is very prone to problems; instead of replacing critical system files, why not just replace them as they are loaded in memory?
    Seems like a much better idea to me.

    The new Winterboard has almost no lag ever for me.
