Since we're discussing themes, a user posted today about the themes s/he
used knowing s/he has a severe form of visual impairment.

"The mouse theme is definitely an improvement"

"And the improved Treepata (improved high/contrast theme) is better then
the shipped default one"

Simon, with your expert eye on what makes a theme good/bad, is Treepata
more interesting to have than our current hicolor theme? Is it worth
shipping it with Xfce 4.12 (maybe instead of or besides hicolor)? Same
question for the mouse theme. The treepata web page explicitly claims it is
more complete than our current high contrast theme.
