First, thanks *very* much to those who are putting so much work into theme
design. I'm a decent coder, but I stink at graphic arts, so your efforts are
deeply appreciated here!

Constructively speaking, I agree with Derek that there needs to be less white
space and other non-essentials at the top of the page. This is especially true
since laptops and monitors seem to be headed toward a wide-screen format to
support multimedia. Even traditional screens are wider than they are tall, so
vertical space is at a premium.

I like both Farsheed's and Trae's work but do think that leaner-is-better for
most design decisions in a *default* theme. For non-default themes, other
considerations may override this.
