Do you have specified structures for themes - file formats, dimensions, file directory location, etc. yet?

Yes, themes have a specific format. An Entertainer theme consists of a set of images and a theme config file and a thumbnail of the theme for the preferences dialog. We don't have a lot of people who do themes, but you can see everything you need if you look at one of the default themes in cfg/themes directory.

After you've created a theme, zip it up into a tarball (e.g., mytheme.tar.gz) and that is the format that Entertainer accepts for adding new themes.
