My plan was to get this done this weekend, but unfortunately I didn't 
have the time for it this week.

First step I would see, is moving the phptemplate primary link 
configuration from the theme specific section and move it to
the admin/themes/settiings, making it use the theme variables, and not 
just the phptemplate_primary_links variable. This
is very little in the way of work, and I could do it tomorrow.

- -- At this point I feel it should go into core. It will be internally 
consistent, and we can continue making the link configuration
optimal in core.

Step 2, is adding the menu functions that ber wrote to allow you to use 
a menu block as the source for your links. Then we need
to remove the link configuration we currently use, and replace it with 
a drop down to select a menu block, and probably a link
to configure the menu using the menu module. The settings screen should 
probably create a secondary menu block if none was
available ( like the forum module creates a taxonomy ).

Step 3, is finding a way to allow modules to define their pre-defined 
entries, which will be disabled by default and admins can
enable them. What did we decide about this at the phptemplate links 
meeting again ?

I vote for fresh themes. Or atleast , I vote for a new default theme. 
Is chameleon going to stay as it is (a .theme), or can we convert it to 
.tpl.php too (which is rather simple to do).
