Changing the theme is tweaking, changing the colours of it or changing
the background is personalisation, changing the speaker volume is a
setting (if it can even be called that), changing the default printer is
definitely a setting.

We support personalisation, and settings, but not tweaking. Also see
discussions about the content of the Android and iOS app stores (where
best-sellers on Android are tweak tools, vs. real applications that do
thins on iOS, we definitely want to follow the latter category, but you
can still have tweak tools without jailbreaking GNOME :)
