The dispatcher docs  (howto-structurer-dsl) says

(attribute:theme) 3. the theme, "pelt" is the default theme (another
is the "common" theme). Change this if you are using your own theme.

Which to me means 'if you want to use css from a theme other than the
default set that here'.
In a recent post you wrote about using multiple themes. I didn't
really understand how this could be done. Could you clarify please.

No I haven't. Wouldn't redirecting using locationmap be a sort of
'bulldozer' solution?
Right at the moment I'm finding the whole theme setting/defining
procedure quite confusing.  Wouldn't it make sense to set the project
theme in, and then have all views, css locations
etc cascade from that unless specifically overridden? This would mean
you could make a copy of a theme, put it in your project themes/
directory, set the theme in, and then - barring
putting an .fv file in your xdocs/ directory - do all theme fiddling
within the theme copy.
