Anyone got an archive of Leopard and OS9 themes?

Macintoshian Achaia - Ars Technica OpenForum - arstechnica.com
You may remember back in the day when OS X 10.5 came out it broke Shapeshifter, and thus custom themes. For ages there was no solution, but a while back I read about El Capitan breaking themimg, thus implying there must have been a solution somewhere between 10.4 and 10.11. Sure enough there was: Flavours, but that only went back as far as 10.7. So then I wondered whether anyone cracked the 10.5 theming problem, and yep, they did: Magnifique. It seems there were never very many Magnifique themes, but there were at least a dozen or so, some of which looked pretty decent. Trouble is, they were all on the developer's site, which is now gone, and it's not on the Wayback Machine because their robots.txt. It all seems to have dropped off the internet. The PPC Archive has the Magnifique app itself, but no themes.

So does anyone have any, or a link to where I might find some?

It's a similar story with the OS9 themes. Dead links, stuff not in Wayback Machine, what is available is generally not very sophisticated, mainly just Appearance Manager presets. EDIT: Found massive archive of Kaleidoscope themes on Macintosh Garden.
