As for themes, I've kept my modded (blue-green) UbuntuStudio_Legacy port 
current, supports GTK2,  GTK 3.14 through GTk 3.20 and even development GTK 3.21.
(GTK 3.14 now deprecated for my other packages due to breakage). You can see
for yourself in this package how to support multiple GTK 3 versions, you just keep the
previous version's theme in a versioned subdirectory and add a new one for each GTK 3
version. With "snap" packages coming in for things like Firefox and some no doubt using
different GTK3 versions, this may soon be mandatory.

Debian package is in my usual Archive repo at

Link to the theme .deb package itself is at

but that link will break when the theme is next updated and that version moved to "previous_versions"
