The region handling we introduced for 4.7 (and that I mostly wrote) is a
step forward but produced confusion and instability in multi-theme sites.
It's cumbersome to have to configure things like enabled status separately
for each theme. As a 4.7 workaround I wrote a helper module,
I know that there's work ongoing to improve theme handling of regions. But
I'm behind on the status of this work. Is any of it for 4.8/5.0?
If not, I'd like to consider the following approach:
1. Drop the ability for each theme to define more than the region of a
2. Pull the theme-block configuration into a separate table, e.g.,
block_theme, with fields
module, delta, theme, region
3. Limit the UI configuration to region only for non-default themes.
Is this needed/a good idea?
