Seems strange though that we're possibly going to be using lines like

A very old discussion.  We keep aiming for this goal, but sometimes the
themes come in from new people; if the theme is too good to pass up I
suspect we'll end up in this boat again.  I'd rather have an attractive
theme than a matching theme, personally, although having both would be a
bonus! :-)

There are two problems:
- schedule: even if the selection of the release name was moved near to the development cycle start trying to help the Art team, it still was quite late; - for F9 we really tried such a tie, integrating sulphur crystals in the graphics, but the feed-back was negative so we took it down at the last minute. You can't link a good theme with any name (Cambridge is also tough from this point of view - use a stylised version of the university? a science lab? - not many options).
