It's the multiple single rows in the db that I'm not keen on. Most of 
the time, I've been using a single row in the options table to store a 
serialized array. Each theme then has a manual "reset" option which 
removes all stored theme options but, thus far, I haven't found a way to 
trigger the reset on theme deletion.
