We already have a built in 'Themes' Storage Group that points to
GetConfDir() + "/themes", we just need to modify libmythui and
the theme downloader to honor it.  I made a modification earlier
this week (or last) to allow overriding the builtin Storage Groups,
so users could put the themes wherever they want by overriding
that SG.  I'll take a look at adding this functionality.
