Actually, the WAP theme was intended for WAP phones, and if I recall,
was developed using a WAP emulator.. my guess is that the emulator
supported more than just WML, though.
Neither the WAP theme or the compact theme are actively maintained, so I
may remove them at some point soon for compatibility reasons, anyway...

so it should replace WAP, but not overwrite it.
