I don't see any special need for this. Perhaps only to promote GRUB. I
don't know if Bazaar is well suited for handling binary files though.
And as a GNU project we would need to check licenses of pictures, logos,
fonts and so on before we can include it. If such a check is a burden or
the result isn't clear I prefer not to have any theme at all. Actually I
prefer not to put any artwork in repository and if GNU is to distribute
a theme at all perhaps it could be just a tarball download from
