This is great news, and to make the transition a little easier for people I
have posted my "XTemplate to PHPTemplate conversion" howto at drupal.org, 

See http://drupal.org/node/22019. 

The main reason that I ported the bluemarine theme that has now been
included in core was so that I could create this document. I hope that it is
helpful to everyone is going to be converting their XTemplate themes.

<cvs rant>
Moving the bluemarine PHPTemplate theme into core is one of the main reasons
that I am starting to dislike cvs. Because of the move all the history of
this is gone, and even the more importantly the credit to me. Also the
accountability that this is 100% GPL code is also lost as there is no
history before the initial commit.

I know that the bluemarine PHPTemplate version is derived work from the
original XTemplate version so there is no doubt of it compliance but what
about other code. I am not saying that everyone needs commit access into
core, but the history and the accountability need to be preserved.

Some changes:

1. I committed the PHPTemplate engine to core and removed the XTemplate 
engine from core.

2. I replaced the XTemplate-based version of Bluemarine with the 
PHPTemplate-based version.

3. I moved the XTemplate engine and the Pushbutton theme to the 
contributions repository.  (For almost 2 years XTemplate has been part 
of Drupal core.)

Some TODO-list items:

1. Figure out the menu configuration.  High priority.

2. Add one more PHPTemplate-based theme to core.  Medium priority.

Thanks Adrian et al,
