Hmm. Pretty clean. But I like having all configuration options in one
file. Howabout like this:

#include "Themes.h"
<The theme-related config stuff as normal>

This way those who don't use themes won't even notice (except a few extra
lines in the Config.h) and the theme users simply set uncomment that
define and presto, they can download themes like everyone.

I like these "Let's make wmx like other window managers, except let's be
as wmx-like as possible" -things. Besides, now we could lobby for
wmx.themes.org ;)
