These are things that will break existing code, so they should be delayed until 0.10 or 1.0:

  • Increase axis title margin, so that x and y axis titles aren't so close to tick labels
  • Remove element_blank (?)
  • Merge some element properties:
    • xx.margin into xx.background
    • legend.key.height/width into legend.key
    • xx.align into xx (NA or "auto" for text/number auto alignment)
    • axis.ticks.length into axis.ticks
  • Convert theme_grey() from a function to a simple list
  • Allow theming for geoms, such as geom_bar = element_geom(...)

This sounds like a great feature, but unfortunately we don't currently have the development bandwidth to support it. If you'd like to submit a pull request that implements this feature, please follow the instructions in the development vignette.
