We need to separate two issues here:

1) wpsbuld.pl had several bugs. One was to not check for plain
   "Font:", fixed by Thomas, which made it include too little.
   This also caused that only the font for cabbiev2 was
   included, which may give the impression it was intended.
   It was not, it was just a coincidence. Fixing that bug
   uncovered another bug, which made wpsbuild include too much
   in some other cases. Not just fonts, but also icon sets and
   backdrops. See r19829.

2) Do we want to include several themes or just the default?
   Atm we have a few "privileged" themes, those in SVN, and
   we're shipping them in the basic installation. Those themes
   should of course be shipped in a working state, without
   requiring extra downloads. The question is whether we
   should stop doing this.

*Imo* we should drop the extra themes from the distribution, but
*only* once the theme site is online (hint hint). Then the
"privileged" themes should be removed from SVN as well.

Providing an extras pack is problematic, because that pack would
be target specific, unlike the font pack.
