Me, and probably hundreds and thousands of other people - not everyone
loves a flat default theme and one of the greatest advantages of GNOME
is that it is easy to make it look great.

The desktop font is strongly related to the selected theme. In fact, I
even think that desktop themes should provide a font recommendation and
give the user the possibility to overwrite it by an optional gconf key.
But until that happens, the font needs to be easily configurable.

Following this argument, let's remove the background chooser and theming
as well.

In that case, I'd vote for removal of "Monochrome" and "High Contrast".
