#' Get, set, and modify the active theme
#'
#' The current/active theme is automatically applied to every plot you draw.
#' Use `theme_get` to get the current theme, and `theme_set` to
#' completely override it. `theme_update` and `theme_replace` are
#' shorthands for changing individual elements.
#'
#' @section Adding on to a theme:
#'
#' `+` and \code{\%+replace\%} can be used to modify elements in themes.
#'
#' `+` updates the elements of e1 that differ from elements specified (not
#' NULL) in e2. Thus this operator can be used to incrementally add or modify
#' attributes of a ggplot theme.
#'
#' In contrast, \code{\%+replace\%} replaces the entire element; any element of
#' a theme not specified in e2 will not be present in the resulting theme (i.e.
#' NULL). Thus this operator can be used to overwrite an entire theme.
#'
#' `theme_update` uses the `+` operator, so that any unspecified
#' values in the theme element will default to the values they are set in the
#' theme. `theme_replace` uses \code{\%+replace\%} to completely replace
#' the element, so any unspecified values will overwrite the current value in
#' the theme with `NULL`s.
#'
#' @param ... named list of theme settings
#' @param e1,e2 Theme and element to combine
#' @return `theme_set`, `theme_update`, and `theme_replace`
#' invisibly return the previous theme so you can easily save it, then
#' later restore it.
