A year and a half ago, I ditched the iPhone (and my previous carrier) for a Verizon Galaxy S4, mostly because of the beautiful dark theme, and was tired of staring at the garish light bulb that is an iPhone at night.  Then my S4 got upgraded to 5.0, and I was dismayed to find that a dark theme or night mode wasn't even a user option anymore.  Is there any chance that we'll get a dark theme/night mode option in the future, or is that option only open to users who choose to root?
