Right. I would really not enjoy killing the Human theme, as likely it would just mean that I would need to carry it as a cumbersome vendor patch anyway, just creating lots of pointless work along the way.

What is the point/goal of this anyway? The human theme can be turned off by a configure switch and IIRC isnt even enabled by default. If the goal is to make Ubuntu ship a different default, this certainly isnt the way towards that goal (see above).

If you want a different default in Ubuntu, the way to go about that is filing a request on launchpad at Ubuntu and get that nodded of by Ubuntus design team.

(As a general note this bug doesnt seem to be too well scoped: it describes no clear goal and mixes too many things: removing themes, adding themes, changing defaults with the latter being off-topic here beyond TDF builds.)
