Up until and including Thunderbird 0.6 I could use themes that were created for
0.6 and before. Beginning with version 0.7, with the new Themes manager, I can
no longer use the old themes, and no new themes are available as yet. I would
like for this feature to be returned to Thunderbird.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I click on Tools, Themes then tery to install old .jar files i have saved on
my computer. They all worked on every version prior to 0.7.
2. It appears to install the them but it is not available.
3. In the folder /chrome, deep within the levels of folder in Thunderbird, are
the jar files, but no reference is made to them withing the theme manager.

Actual Results:  
The themes are not listed in the themes manager.

Expected Results:  
Listed the available themes, ie the ones installed.

you can't go back in time and install themes which are no longer compatible with
the current front end.
