It's a general problem with many feature-oriented interfaces.

Some obvious questions:

Are there other common look-and-feel tasks that occur at this point in 
the user's experience?  Any feel as to whether changing the (default) 
theme should be done before or after changing the logo?

Are there any other tasks, besides configuring look-and-feel, that 
compete for the user's attention immediately after setup and logging in 
as administrator?
