What do people think about offering  a "Flat" scheme for FLTK?

I think this would make for a lot of out of the box appeal, and when people are shopping around for GUI libraries, having a couple style options is certainly a big plus. 
+1 . I like the idea.
On the plus side this flat style (available in win10 and maybe win8) is looking nice and clean. On the other hand these flat UIs have the downside that you can't tell what's a button, what's a menu and what's a label or just a background. You can hardly tell them apart. Sometimes it's even hard to tell with hovering your mouse over them, because the highlight coloring is also not that different from normal coloring.
With proper/stronger coloring I think a "flat" FLTK UI can be way better than any default win10 UI.

I think there's no arguing as well that GUI design trends have moved away form skeuomorphisms. 

I know this might go against the "Light" in FLTK, but could go a long way into giving the library a more modern look.

Here's an example of a flat app scheme:
