Too many items in the theme prefs dialogue. I'd certainly lean towards
having 6 or 7 of the best / most usable, and letting interested users
discover more if they care about it (we ought to make that process easier
too, but that's a whole other conversation).

Already in my list, I have:

  Grand Canyon
  High Contrast
  High Contrast Inverse
  Large Print
  Ocean Dream
  Smokey Blue

All of these, other than Dubcurve (which is Bluecurve + GNOME and Flat Blue
icons) come with GARNOME (not necessarily by default, though). With all the
thumbnails, that makes for a pretty long list, and it's only 13.

Maybe the theme dialogue just doesn't scale well, and we could have that
many themes if it did?
