I think this is a great idea. The k2 idea of "schemes" was really really
cool, and I'm imagining a world where there's a WP foundation that could be
used to build a CSS Zen Garden esque gallery of themes. This would help the
problem of WP themes needing security audits, etc, which was an issue for
Alex King's Theme Browser, I know. Sharing CSS is pretty easy, and having a
standard-ish base to build on sounds really exciting.

Is anyone out there working on a k2-lite theme for Sandbox? I'm thinking
that might be a good project for me.
