Yoshinori Tahara decreases the number of HTTP request by combining all CSS
files into one by the theme designer's hand, while Rouslan does so by
merging all CSS files on the server-side (PHP).  The ways look different,
but what is done is similar.  So, which is the more suitable for
encouraging theme designers to create a new work?  I mean "theme
designers" are ones who don't know much about PHP.  I am not a theme
designer, so I don't know the answer.  However, it is important whether
theme designers, not developers,  feel it easy to produce a new theme.

As for Rouslan's way, why don't you use tools to optimize CSS and
JavaScript files, such as minify[1]?  You should do minify CSS files
better and cache them on the **server** side.
