Exactly. So lets take the settings already in the theme capplet, and
unify them into a single theme system so people don't have to change 10
things to change the narrow aspects of appearance. That, in my mind, is
what the theme capplet should be; not this gargantuan "meta" settings
capplet that changes all aspects related to appearance (many of which,
like font, affect a hell of a lot more than appearance... like my
ability to read with poor eyesight).
