Hello all,

This is my first post here. I have been following this thread with interest. Here's my opinion about drupal.css

1. drupal.css shouldn't be split in multiple files.

Reason: Performance, more requests to the web server, adding overhead. Even if the files are cached browsers can be configured to check for changes every time the page is visited. Logs become bigger too.

2. If possible add a checkbox to admin->themes to disable drupal.css.

Reason: For advanced users (themers), they will find easier to add complete stylesheets to their themes instead of overriding drupal.css, I have found very difficult to override certain default styles, besides overriding only increases the size (duplicating code) instead of only one stylesheet there are two.

Best regards.
