Did you know that themes can have dependencies too?
Of course themes can depend on another theme, by having the other theme specified in the BaseTheme directive in the Theme.txt file. What's more however, that themes can also have dependencies on modules: just use the Dependencies parameter like with modules in the Module.txt.
