Marvin2k for phptemplate might be a candidate since it is already done 
(it might need a polish though). It was directly ported from a custom 
theme format which was used by the original Marvin2k theme. Info from 
the original theme:

| An update to the original marvin theme, using the latest
| web standards.
| A complete update to the original marvin theme, marvin_2k
| provides many new features. Some of the features include a
| new tableless, CSS based design which takes advantage of
| the latest web standards.

I am in no doubt that someone will be able to do an aestetically better 
theme, if given some time. I am just here to point out that this is 
there as an option.
