That did not work if you want to use any contracts that are provided
by the common themes. Since we are only looking in the custom themer
for contracts.

I've patched dispatcher so that it does work though, you just need to add:

<match pattern="dispatcher.themer">
  <location src="{properties:forrest.plugins}/ac.uk.osswatch.forrest.themes" />
</match>

To your locationmap.
