This remains an issue, but...

This conversation (among other things) happened in #stepmania:

(piman) My only real concern is about Debian bug #201448, which is
someone intending to package StepMania for Debian GNU/Linux.
(_Glenn_) Heh.  That won't happen for a while; not until we get an
original theme, at least.
(_Glenn_) I'll check on it.
(_Glenn_) I've wanted an original theme for a very long time. 
Unfortunately, I'm not an artist so I can do next to nothing to help; so
I can't do much about that.

It could go in contrib/, but it would be pretty useless (no graphics or
sounds at all, which is most of the package).

So, I no longer object to this ITP, assuming it's done *after* the theme
