Howto for packaging a desktop theme?

I guess it shouldn't be too hard to do package a desktop theme, but I'm
too busy with other things to investigate it myself.

Do I understand correctly, that themes easily can be implemented
afterwards via the GUI - even if the default theme is chosen already?
Maybe we could provide some additional desktop themes to easily chose
from, if we can find a punch of people working on that.

Does anybody have an idea how we could enable non-techies (such as me)
to package/provide new themes for others?

It's to late for a workshop on the next debconf meeting. But maybe we
could find an other event to start from.

Is there anybody who thinks he could lead such a workshop?

I would care to write a tutorial on it, but I have absolutely no plan
how it works (yet).

Any suggestions?
