The current themes (in CVS) are already up to date - we do that anyway
when there are changes in the templates.

Hmm, did you see Tom Willet's offer to host themes on gplugs.sf.net? I
don't really think we should have each and every theme in the "core" CVS.
Of course, adding one or two more professional-looking themes (like the
one that Simon originally did for GQueer) wouldn't hurt ...

I don't see a problem with that. The changes will be documented (as we
did with the previous changes, see <http://www.geeklog.net/docs/
theme.html#changes>). At the moment, all you would need to do to upgrade
a theme to CVS/1.3.8 is to copy over the preferences, comment, and search
directories. Oh, and some additional classes that were introduced in
