What I would like is to avoid discussion "implementation" and "sane 
bases" and "building on". All that can come later, and will come, and 
will be good. My agenda is moving focus of discussion to what is missing 
from core. *I think* that a "good looking" theme is missing, something 
that puts Drupal's on a "sexiness" par with Joomla.

But here, you have provided a candidate "inkscape", that is what I'd 
like to see. I don't find this theme in the downloads - can you provide 
a screenshot?
