I have tried something like that before, the problem with this is it
changes the theme for all the existing frames. So if I make an X
window frame, I get the proper theme. Then if I start a client in the
xterm, I get the proper theme for the no-window frame but my X window
frame also changes theme to that theme. It doesn't change back to the
desired X window theme even when I select the X window frame with the
mouse or Alt+Tab. It would be good if themes could be selected for
specific frames and not the entire emacs session itself.

If this is unrealisable for the current emacs release, could this be a
feature enhancement request for future releases?
