Hi Ken,

Uploaded, thanks!

I have some questions wrt. the themes:

When I upgraded my laptop to intrepid, I got NewHuman by default (I
might have customized something in the Appearance applet on my
laptop), while on my desktop I stayed with Human. Which behaviour is
intended? (Preferably staying on human?)

Aside from general darkness (de gustibus non disputandum est), a
rather objective issue with New Human is that dialog and text
backgrounds are too dark. This is a particular issue with terminals;
black text still has a bearable contrast, but coloured text
just looks awful. Any chance to brighten the default background, or
special-case the Terminal window to have a very light background
color? Personally I really like the human one. It is not 100% white,
thus not too bright for the eyes, but still pretty much "white"ish for
not straining the eyes in bright working environments and providing
good text contrast.
