Are we going to do the same for all the other proposed themes? It seems
to me that if we just shove ClearLooks in and expect people to test it,
that it will trap to being the default, by virtue of the fact that it
simply at least looks better than Simple for most people. If the goal
of the mail Diana sent was to announce that it would be going in to
CVS for testing purposes, and is still only proposed, I see no reason
we shouldn't do likewise for the other proposed themes.
