Just as a sidenote: I would be very careful with removing featues just 
because we believe people don't use them (maybe because we don't get bug 
reports). We once did that with the projects plugin in Kate, and got *lots* 
of complaints suddenly as complete surprise...
Based on this, there are certainly users using those themes.
