      Description

      It would be very nice to have an item in a theme that allowed one to indicate which theme to inherit from, eg:

      default theme - no inheritance:

      printable.properties:
      org.jboss.seam.theme.inherit default

      accessible.properties:
      org.jboss.seam.theme.inherit default

      accessible-printable.properties
      org.jboss.seam.theme.inherit printable accessible
      ...

      Thus, the accessible-printable version would inherit first from printable, then from accessible. Assuming they could in fact co-exist, that might work out nicely to produce an accessible-printable version.
      It would also be nice to allow inheritance from generic property files that are NOT explicit themes - that way, you can put portions of a theme in another file, and just inherit from all the required themes. Note that the Java API makes this relatively easy, just be creating a chain of inheritance. (Note that only accessible would chain to default, a new printable would be needed that only inherited from accessible, not from anything else.)
