StudioPress doesn't (generally) update child themes, so it's safe to 
edit them (though I have a minimum hack called minimika so I can 
experiment and safely roll back). I poked them about that since it 
spooked me at first!

Crystal is a child managed theme.

It's actually been sitting in draft since I redesigned my sites last

I'd actually skip this in favor of doing #3 first and then coming back 
to write it in the codex whatever comes next :)

Definitely would be nice to have something 'accepted' if not official.
