[development] Error defining parameters in hook_theme

Actually, I have everything working as I need it for my required 
functionality, except for the display of the title as an editable text 
field.  I can save the data in my table and reorder the items using the 
default nodequeue functionality just fine; it's just the display of the 
field as a textfield which is causing the problem (see 
http://drupal.org/node/653574 for details).  My reason for trying to use 
a #theme function for this field was that it appears that the div that 
is put around the form item in theme_form_item (being called through 
hook_form_alter) was what was causing the display problem, so I was 
going to remove it by overriding theme_form_item for that field.  I 
don't think overriding  theme_nodequeue_arrange_subqueue_form would 
work, since the div that is causing the problem is introduced in 
hook_form_alter.  Unless I change the field type in there....  Hmmm...

All I need is to get the display of the field working properly; 
everything else is working as I need it.  I'm so close I can taste it...
