I knew that. I'm just worried you'll create a new default theme, and
leave Kubrick's folder called 'default' for the sake of compatibility.

Yeah, in fact, Kubrick is the reason I first found out about WordPress.
At the time, the blog at http://whereswalden.com/ (specifically I was
linked to the post
<http://whereswalden.com/2005/02/25/firefox-prefwindowv/>) was running
Kubrick. Because it was the first time I'd seen that theme, I was
captivated, went to the WordPress link featured in the footer,
downloaded WordPress, and now I'm a WordPress user!
