Hello all :)

well, i have an idea!
in the themes screen, when the user chooses to change the theme, WP asks him
"Do you want to keep theme data?" or anything else. if user clicks yes, we
run some hook "theme_deletion_hook" or action "theme_delete_data". the theme
should have a delete_data function which will be attached to this event/hook
and it would delete the data, we can also add "remove_theme_mods" to that

What do you think?
