I think that was my post :) My screens of the Darkilouche theme can be seen at:

I'm also interested to know whether Darkilouche has been considered

tried a number of dark themes over the last few days and Darkilouche
is the only one I've found that doesn't suffer from problems due to
inverted colours.
