Done that. On my Windows 8.1 VM, I notice some strange behavior:
 - By default, Breeze dark is loaded, even though I have not customized
   my color settings at all in this VM.
 - Using the "Default" color scheme option switches to Breeze classic.
   However, this setting is not permanent in that Breeze dark is again
   active in the next session.
 - Setting one of the themes explicitly, seems to be saved / loaded,
   correctly, though.

Well, that's Windows 8.1, not much worth worrying about, I guess.

What's troubling me more is that QWebEngineView (used, among other
things, for Help->Help on RKWard) does not adapt to the color theme at
all. I tried adding CSS rules (@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark)
{...}), but QWebEngine simply seems to be unaware of the color scheme
in use. Any ideas, what I may be missing?

(Interestingly, KF5WebKit, still in use on MinGW does adjust itself to
the theme.)
