Yeah, I can agree with those things. In looking at the zen series, I
think a strong case can be made that a 'BlueMarine-alike' skin for it
would be a relatively straightforward step. I mentioned on IRC that
BlueMarine offers something none of the variations presented so far do:
With a dark header, relatively dark sidebars, and a light content area,
it feels more like a 'frame around your stories' than any of the others
do. I like that a lot, and I think a variation of zen that utilizes that
approach, echoing the general layout of and style of BlueMarine, could
be a really nice addition.
