Is it generally possible (I know this is possible with sawfish) for the user to
install a theme without root privileges? If so, then one big theme package is
useful to allow a user to browse themes, select the one(s) they like, and copy
it/them into an appropriate spot in their home directory (after which they can
delete the big package).
