What are compiz-themes?

I've never really used compiz before, and I'm still experimenting, but I'm wondering, what exactly are compiz themes? (For example, on, there is a whole section of them.)

I know the difference between compiz and emerald, so I know what the different window decoration themes are. I'm just wondering then, assuming that compiz themes aren't window decorations, what are they themes for?

Thanks! Sorry this question is so dumb...

Themes usually apply the look not only to the window decorations but also to the taskbar, menus, folders etc.
