Surely once they're in variables, you can/should just save them as one of your
own schemes? Then if Isaac throws a wobbly and decides to have pictures
of Dave Winer as his background image, it won't kill your scheme.

Can I also suggest (and it may be a crap suggestion) that when you view
a member's members' page, you should view it in *their* currently selected/
most recently used colour scheme?
