lets get pragmatic here. sometimes users want a different look for their 
"space". "different look" might meen customized blocks and customized 
colors. for example, the Brazil organic group might want the Soccer News 
feed on top and the yellow color scheme. their organic group. is that a 
valid requirement. if so, how should it be implemented?

it is fine to say that most sites/modules not switch the theme. thats 
accurate. but sometimes it is a valid system requirement IMO.

alan's link points to a bootstrap bug thats been fixed. i don't think it 
strengthens anyone's argument unless you believe in folklore like "bad 
things happen when you switch themes"
