I should also note that the patch proposed in RT-19713 did tackle the 
root problem of changing the default user agent stylesheet. It was just 
deemed too heavyweight to bring in the concept of themes for the limited 
use cases where it would be used, and therefore failed to gain the 
required support. The currently proposed approach was what I originally 
intended before going down the themes route, so I'm happy either way 
(especially if we can move to the opt-out automatic upgrade model I 
mentioned in my last email).
