Themes from OS

Hi, I like this ribbon project and hope it stays active. I can see there is some create, load and save theme functionality in this ribbon. could this ribbon not take the the themes from the operating system?

Is there a way I can get the ribbon to take the themes from the operating system?
For example, if I set the theme to high or low contrast could the ribbon not take on this theme in real-time like say Windows Paint would on Windows 7

Nope. Not that I know. The Ribbon is completely drawn depending on the given Color Theme. There is no adaption depending on the operating system theme.

But I'm assuming it's possible to grab the windows theme colours and generate a theme based on them using the load/save theme stuff in this amazing ribbon project. I worry that if the user chooses a theme then the app using the ribbon is gonna look completely out of place unless the app at least loosely handles the colour changes.
