(First rant)

While everyone is discussing whether a "3-column CSS layout template for 
developers" is achievable - I think this development process arse-up. 
Discussing implementation issues in absence of something to implement is 
wasting time.

Our trialling users, Fantastico users, non-techie administrators, they 
want a new "sexy" theme as one of the defaults. For that reason, the 
focus has to be on the design first, and therefore we the tools are 
Photoshop, Fireworks or GIMP - *not* CSS and HTML. I'm sure we'd have 10 
great candidates designs within a week if an announcement went in the 
forums. Or let's just expand on a great looking Wordpress theme. Or 
let's just have a vote on the best looking contrib theme.

After we have the design, we can knock ourselves out with the 
implementation. Until then the clock's ticking, and rehashing ALA 
articles is not going to get us anywhere.

Cheers, Simon
