That's been suggested before; I think it's a fine idea but there didn't
seem to be enough buy-in at the time.  Changing the font from the theme
capplet, though I personally believe it's correct, was very
controversial and as a result doesn't play that well with the rest of 
theming or font selection.

My understanding is that it's a sort of uber-theme feature that 
allows a user to create (or load and reuse) sets of preferences that
for one reason or another go beyond the definition of "theme" as it's 
understood by the gnome ui folks.  Such a feature would allow a
one-click change not only to font, theme, background, but other gconf
settings too.

Naah, though the HighContrastInverse theme is black and purple too;-)
As long as the background isn't very bright and doesn't have lots of
distracting visual detail on it it's fine.
I was only worried about the light bg with a low-contrast foot on it,
that one was too bright.
