Okay, how about I focus on two things .. moving the hardcoded html into
templates, and once that's done, I can update the current suite of themes
over to the new code, and add three new themes (which I have semi done)
which are Geekqua (renamed from Smooth_Aqua to avoid Apple bitching at us),
Codex (a basic theme with the book interface I've already done), and
Smooth_CSS (which is a 100% XHTML1/CSS2(ish) theme).

The only problem I foresee if once 1.3.8 is out, it will require *ALL* third
party themes to be updated to handle the removal of the hardcoded html.  I
can release a document to the devel list on the changes, and propose a
standard of 'drop in' templates to help this process.
