Hi Gregory,

I agree with Drew that these are two different (IMO interesting)

If (as suggested) the modern-mode becomes a modern-theme this is
effectively like a new set of defaults that can be easily toggled, and
if the user wants later on refined and re-configured.

I hope to see both features coming to fruition as they are not
