 Themes at a low level, such as the widget library have at least some argument, in allowing the user flexibility to customize their environment to their tastes. This I can accept as a valid use, since it is generally localized to your own account, and has legimitate uses - e.g. making all fonts larger if you have a visual impairment. 
 What many apps do, which should cause you to tear your hair out in frustration, and use it to beat the authors senseless with, is to devote much time and effort to making themselves as "skinnable". This means that instead of following the UI guidelines for whatever platform they are targetting, they disregard it completely, and use pixmaps for ''every'' control. This means that all of your global font and colour preferences are ignored, and the program looks, feels, and behaves differently from all of your other software. Sure, you can ''try'' to integrate it, using a skin specifically aimed at your environment, but the slightest change to your setup will need a CascadeUpdate. 
-Blaring examples of this type of stupidity are [XMMS], [xine ], [Mozilla][1] and many [Windows] scanner drivers.

 [1] [Mozilla] at least has some justification, since it is really a complete environment to itself, but it's still annoying.[2] 
 [2] Note that [Mozilla] will still respect your Gtk theme to some degree under Linux, which can be confusing-/annoyingly inconsistent.
