I also don't like color-theme, in particular, how the themes are created
by re-defining all faces. A comprehensive theme could easily run up to a
few thousand lines and it still does not offer 100% coverage, let alone

Perhaps a color theme should be defined to be something like a palette
and when a palette is selected defface is forced to only use colors in
it. For example the tango project uses 27 colors.

On a side note, Textmate seems to offer the best color themes. See the
following url for many beautiful themes submitted by its users.
