so they can register with the menu system

so that people buying debian CDs don't have to download large themes

so that if you have lots of users they can share a single copy of the theme in
/usr/share/enlightenment/themes rather than each having an indvidual copy in

so that more files on the system are maintained by the package system

to reduce the number of files in your home dir

to reduce the size of your home dir
