[development] Update on 5.0 core themes

Just FYI:

the bluebreeze theme is based on the html source of the zen theme 
(slightly modified). So it can serve the same puropses as the zen theme 
(= be a good base for a new theme to develop).

I think it is soon to be RTBC. I got quite a lot of reviews and bug 
reports on [1]. However, some more reviews would be appreciated.

Of course I'm biased as I'm the main developer of the bluebreeze theme, 
but IMHO it would still be a good default theme, as it is a good source 
for new themes (zen structure), it has a quite unique style, a liquid 
and fixed width version and from a usability point of view it serves the
purpose of an administration theme quite good IMO.
