Becca was an easy first choice because her themes looks great and they 
were already in the wp-themes.org repository. Mike Little is the new 
theme gardener and he will be adding some more of the GPL themes to the 
repository in the coming days that will end up on the featured themes 
page. We're checking themes for the basic action hooks and making sure 
they function at least as well as the default with regards to pages and 

The order of the themes will be randomized so you get a peek of 
something new every time you visit. The downloads are going through the 
BRAND NEW repository-driven download system which generates the archives 
directly from the repository and also tracks all of the downloads so we 
can provide fun statistics to theme authors. This is the same DL system 
that will be used for the upcoming plugin directory. Hopefully this will 
alleviate some of the bandwidth problems people have been having!

Ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions?
