I was thinking about some minor tweaking. Examples of changes that are
not minor but, in my opinion, would make some themes better are:
* pmahomme
- header sizes (h2) would look better with 1.2-1.4 em and bold ->
would take less space while making them stand out enough
- reduce paddings a bit in various places (page tabs, tables) to make
it more compact. Currently it may look good on large screens (1200 in
height and higher), but on my 1600x900 I would like to see more data
on screen: in default theme I can display 35 data rows, in pmahomme
only 17 fit on the screen
* toba
- change black lines around data cells to something lighter, currently
data in tables is difficult to read
