(load-theme 'FOO) is trivial syntax, even for people knowing no Lisp
whatsoever.  It is not like specifying keybindings or adding functions
to hooks which both do involve a non-trivial syntax.

In the meantime, we have code that does not do anything useful, that
has the potential for inadvertently messing up a user's init file when
unrelated changes to other Themes code is made (as recently happened)
and that can confuse people who are trying to understand the code.

Should we not just comment it out, as my patches do?  If at some later
point, that code could be rewritten to do something useful (which I
doubt), one could easily uncomment it anyway.
