Schemes

With the new LiveJournal scheme that the people over in ljdesign are creating, I'm wondering whether brad wants this as the new default scheme, or should users be able to select which scheme they want to use?

The ?usescheme method is nice, but there is no way that I know to make it stick between pages. If I'm wrong about this though, please correct me. A user settable option would be nice so that a user could select between the 5 current LJ schemes (dystopia, bluewhite, lynx, opalcat woais) and the new one currently being designed.

The downside, though, is that perhaps LiveJournal will no longer have a standard look/feel if users are using different schemes. On the upside, users who are happy with dystopia won't have to get used to a new user interface if the new design gets approved.

Are there any thoughts/opinions on whether users should be able to permanently set their preferred scheme (with a cookie, or with a userprop)? Does anybody know of a way to do this with the current LJ code? Is there interest in this being developed if it doesn't exist already?

Thanks for reading and for the discussion!
