We can add a global_status flag which is marked dirty if a theme that's
flagged as theme setting is changed, and reset if a theme was selected
in the themes browser (or generally if a selected .cfg contained 1 or
more theme settings).

If it's been modified it doesn't have to be shown in place of the last
selected theme, it could also be a special entry. I under the impression
that giving an indicator what theme the modified one is based off is a
neat thing.
