This is regarding the idea discussed earlier about the wordpress theme editor. I have made some changes and added new functionality to my previous version. The editor is now able to save the changes made back to the server. Also i have resolved a lot of issues with the CSS rules. You can read the updates in detail in this blog post: http://ankuranand.in/blog/2012/03/update-2-added-save-functionality/.
Link to my demo: http://ankuranand.in/gsoc/wordpress/
Notes of the project: http://ankuranand.in/blog/gsoc-project/

I would love to hear feedback from the community over the idea and what else can be done with it.

The main idea is to provide a tool which lets us edit the CSS Live in the browser and then save the changes.
