(Thinking  aloud perhaps:) I wonder how you choose to handle
theme  changes in upgrades. With so many people already  (or
/still/)  using  Kubrick  you can't just drop it.  Also,  if
changing default themes, there ought to be some check during
upgrade,  ensuring that the current theme is not superceded,
overridden,  or  replaced.  This could  get  slightly  messy
because  people don't like noticeable and unwanted  changes,
even  if  a  few clicks revert back to  old  settings  (e.g.
Dapper->Edgy, XP->Vista).

                         ~~ Kind greetings and happy holidays!
