I agree, but IMHO, it is common for users to change the theme, so, even
without promoting it, a lot of users will be using this tweaking tool if
it is the only way for do it.

For me tweaking is changing parameters that it is tought that users
shouldn't change, but I find strange the only way to change the
theme/fonts is through tweaking :)
