i got good and bad news:

good news:
another theme is half way done: "gry*" it also looks quite nice
it s as fast as the neo theme (at least feels that way)
elm theme is complete
illume theme is half way done (cusomizig the fully featured 
elnightenment theme is a nightmare!!)
etk is done (only the tree was customized, and it can stay that way 
since libframeworkd-phonegui-efl0 will die.
this theme cannot mess up anymore liek the neo theme did. guaranteed!
libframeworkd-phonegui-efl customization is not needed anymore.
theme can be downloaded @ [1]

bad news:
i did not consider recoloring the nEo theme from the beginning .
the only thing i can do for now is making the green customizable, the 
background has to stay dark (not necessarily black)
since most CLIP objects use 255 255 255 255 white also can't be customized.
i have to rewrite the whole theme if i want to make it fully customizable
also since libframeworkd-phongui-efl has about 9 edj files to recolor, 
recoloring will be a real bitch.

consider this a preview.
to make sure there aren't any questions:
contents of elm.zip go to /usr/share/elementary/themes
(activate it by crating a executable shellscript in /etc/profile.d/ 
containing the following lines:
export ELM_THEME= gry
export ELM_ENIGNE= x11-16
contents of illume.zip go to /usr/share/enlightenment/data/themes
contents of etk.zip go to /usr/share/etk/themes /yes overwrite your 
default theme (don't worry! in case you are afraid to crash anything you 
can always reinstall the default theme via opkg)
feedback is very much appreciated (in illume theme teh defaul theme 
shines trough on many paces, but it is usable)
(but under any circumstances DO NOT SAY ANYTHING AGAINST THE FLOWERS! :-P)
