Version 1.1.0 on 2022-12-06

The `standard-themes-headings' now covers the Org agenda

  The user option `standard-themes-headings' lets the user control the
  height, weight, and use of proportionately spaced fonts
  (`variable-pitch') on a per-heading basis.  Different combinations are
  possible, as explained in the option's doc string on the corresponding
  entry in the manual.

  I have now made it possible to specify the `agenda-date' and
  `agenda-structure' keys.  Both pertain to the Org agenda.  The former
  applies to date headings, while the latter styles the headings of each
  "block" of content.  In a generic agenda buffer, that block heading is
  the first line which reads `Week-agenda (W49):' or something like
  that, though we find such headings in more places as well.

  Here is a sample with various stylistic variants per heading:

  │ (setq standard-themes-headings ; read the manual's entry or the doc string
  │       '((0 . (variable-pitch light 1.9))
  │     (1 . (variable-pitch light 1.8))
  │     (2 . (semilight 1.7))
  │     (3 . (semilight 1.6))
  │     (4 . (1.5)) ; absence of weight means "regular"
  │     (5 . (1.4))
  │     (6 . (bold 1.3))
  │     (7 . (bold 1.2))
  │     (agenda-date . (semilight 1.5))
  │     (agenda-structure . (variable-pitch light 1.9))
  │     (t . (variable-pitch 1.1))))

  Note that Org re-uses heading levels past 8.  This means that level 9
  will look the same as level 1.  This is not the theme's doing.  Check
  the user options `org-level-faces', `org-n-level-faces' for ways to
  change this.

`M-x theme-choose-variant' works as expected

  Users of Emacs 29 have access to the command `theme-choose-variant':
  it toggles between two themes of the same family.  If the family has
  more members, it uses minibuffer completion instead.

  I registered the appropriate theme properties to make this work as
  intended.  However, it is still possible to use the command

Stylistic refinements

  ⁃ Simplified the Magit blame faces to avoid exaggerations.
  ⁃ Revised the colours of day headings in the `M-x calendar' buffer.
    Weekends stand out, as is the case with physical calendars and many
    established apps.
  ⁃ Made the `edmacro-label' face stand out in its context.  Otherwise
    it was difficult to spot.  This is for Emacs 29 and applies to
    headings in the keyboard macro editing buffer (e.g. with `C-x C-k
    C-e' (`kmacro-edit-macro-repeat')).
  ⁃ Added support for the `powerline' package.
