 A UI for tweaking is theme is IMHO clutter. Whoever bothers to do so would
propably prefer hacking the theme files and with gtk3 by using css this can
be much easier. Also to maintain such tool would be laborious.

In any case, you should add a "Use system default" for any colour/font/size

I think that's not necessary any intervention, because clock already
provides the default colour/font/size but can be customized using Pango
Markup, or if you prefer, you can still hack the theme files.
