You can easily add or remove themes for any application by
creating/renaming a file <appname>.manifest
That way you have external control over themes, i think delphi had one
such file, i remember using it on apps (including D7) that did not
contain a manifest file inside their resources, probably using the
themes support inside lazarus one can do this from the code.

It is sometimes strange to disable themes for only one app but useful
if that app has a custom interface.
