I think this is a fine idea.  From what I can tell, installing a new
same-gnome theme is just a matter of dropping a new .png file into
/usr/share/gnome-games/same-gnome/themes.  Other gnome games are
probably just as easy to re-theme.

I can see two ways to add the additional themes.  The preferred method
would be to submit them upstream and get them included in the original
upstream package.  This would simplify the packaging and installation
process greatly.

If, for whatever reason, upstream is not receptive to adding new themes,
then we can make a new 'gnome-games-themes' package that contains the
new themes.  The advantage of using a separate package is that new
themes could be added without having to coordinate with upstream
gnome-games releases.

I would welcome new themes for these games and would be willing to help
coordinate with upstream or package them separately as needed.
