I know you can configure per user in the settings and there's also the interface config.inc.php which states the "default" theme.
I'm yet to install 126.96.36.199 but got issues now as my ispc3 code has hacks and need to diff out my changes
@Till: Maybe a themes site/page should be made for contributions, i'm sure there's quite a few artists out there. I'm missing my likings of icons in theses
so I'm writing my own *cough cough* template. :P
