Re: Call for 2.2 Screenshots

I really like the way Windows separates them. "Metathemes" are called
Themes. "Subthemes" as hp puts them, are called "Schemes". For instance,
there are Sound and Color Schemes, and there is the Themes tab in the
Appearance Control Panel, where you can change what the entire desktop
looks/sounds/feels like.
