I couldn't make much sense of this last paragraph. Anyway, dark backgrounds are still out there and some people like it. I personally like zenburn because of the low contrast that is not too low. That's why I made it.

I've downloaded and opened a theme from http://wiki.macromates.com/Themes/UserSubmittedThemes and it seems they're just an xml, so it shouldn't be too hard to make a conversor. And, what a surprise, most themes on the page are dark background too :)
