Sounds good to me.

I've got a follow up question to that: When and where to theme files get
decompressed to? I see two reasonable options here:

1) When FreeAmp starts, it figures out what theme it needs and decompresses
it into /tmp/freeamp-$pid/theme (or X:\windows\temp\theme). When FreeAmp
closes the files get cleaned up. Pro: Less wasted disk space Con: Slower
startup time
2) When the user selects a new theme the theme is decompressed into
~/.freeamp/theme (or X:\Program Files\FreeAmp\themes\<themename> and it run
from there. The themes are never cleaned from the drive unless the user
requests it. Pro: Faster startup Con: Wasted disk space

I think I prefer option #2.
