Motivation for this change

In the past to change colors of this theme you must do

 mkdir -p ~/.themes
 cp -Lr --no-preserve=mode /run/current-system/sw/share/themes/cdetheme ~/.themes/
 chmod +x ~/.themes/cdetheme/scripts/switchtheme
 cd ~/.themes/cdetheme/scripts/
 ./switchtheme ../palettes/Crimson.dp 4 0 0 false true false

Now its enough to do

cde-gtk-theme.override { palette = "Crimson"; numOfColors = 4; }
