I looked into this and you were right all along. I was confused, so sorry about that. You will have to iterate through all buffers, call `view:goto_buffer()`, and then `view:set_theme()`, as you have been doing. It's not ideal, but Scintilla's lack of a distinction between buffer and view functionality is the issue here. Technically, buffers hold style information, and that needs to be refreshed for each one.

I've made a note to look into a better way of handling this, but since it's an uncommon use of theming, it won't be a high priority.
