Hrm - I always thought the recommended behavior, Drupal and otherwise, 
was to copy the theme into a new directory and modify as needed. This 
was difficult with xtemplate, but not so much with phptemplate. Can we 
get away from this paradigm? "You have modified the bluemarine theme. 
This is generally unrecommended - consider reading this handbook page 
instead on how to properly theme Drupal." ?
