Well, the value of "this" is hard to say -- as you've introduced another
project. Yes, I think there's merit to creating 'theme templates' to build
But my original point is that things like plugins, that want to output code
matching the format of the current theme -- again, start with just adding
sidebar elements -- have no way to do so. An extra set of variables or
functions would be nice.
The Presentation page itself could, in theory, have a 'validation' option
that'd say whether or not certain hooks/functions/variables are defined that
MUST be for proper integration overall, plus best-of-class support for
dropping in plugins, etc.
