While we're at it, let me sign the agreement too :)

I don't find the idea of offering licenses (for themes to be used with
Rockbox) which do not share the spirit of Rockbox and FOSS in general
appealing at all.

Our license has a part to give credits to the original author in derived
artwork (the attribution part). So there's little point in discussing
about stealing anyway.

Best regards.
