The problem with Aura is that it's too common amongst themes etc. Basically, let's go over the key points of the theme, it might help us:

The theme is finished, were just brain storming it's label in the settings menu. Free time is short, development is slow, patience is a virtue! Ellipsis will be complete in the end and it will be worth the wait.

I think 'Quantum' is a good idea.
Enable Quantum Theme
What do you think?

I've designed the Add-On windows, and working on the remaining view types. This morning I have realised that the view types are very important and we're going to add as many as we can to the skin, the best of the best, so if you have a favourite view type from another skin, let us know, we'll try our best to put it in. Version 1.2, which is the next release with all these changes, may not have ALL the view types finished, but it will be XBMC compatable and should have the add-on windows done. Then 1.3 will be massive view type overhaul. More as it happens.
