There are now several theme 'Collections' for download, and they are getting to be rather large (3.2 MB for example) These collections contain a number of seperate themes, where the only difference between them, is the background image used in the WPS.

If the WPS background as well as the MENU background could be selected from the theme.cfg file, all the themes could point to the same WPS and significantly reduce the size of the collection.
This task depends upon

The menu background can be selected from the .cfg file. It's just the WPS backdrop that can't. It would be awkward to have the WPS backdrop settable in two places.

while I agree it would be nice I don't think space for storing the themes on disk is an issue -- disk space is the only thing we have plenty of ;-)
I'd rather like to see packaged theme files which then should include everything in one file, which would also duplicate some data in these cases.
