While I _do_ have too agree that FriendsElectric is indeed a very,  
very good theme I don't think it is very easy to customize.
There is a lot of PHP-code inside the template.php file which is  
there to insert more divs using regular expressions. But I think  
it'll reflect what is currently possible using drupals theming engine  
and themes..

So, afterall I would like to +1 for having FriendsElectric in core..  
And i would like to rid of all the other themes... :-)
