At the end of the theme chooser, there's a "Edit theme list" (in beta  
16 or something and ahead I think). From there you can either copy  
another theme, or you can add a new one. The new one will have some  
scopes already defined, but without any colour or such.
Then, you just go through the scopes and and set them, from within  
the preference window. This will have immediate effect on the file  
you view at the moment.
You can also at any time hit shift+control+p in your syntax file to  
see what scopes a certain item has, then just add those scopes in the  
theme editor and colour them up!
Good enough?
Be sure to send in your results, themes seem to be the latest buzz  
now :)
