If you add code to simulate a Loop and a few of the other wp_*()
functions, it would be complete. The complaint Brian has about it being
kind of useless is less true now that WP includes those non-echo
functions. Read my comment on his post, which I wrote way back when.

The code is online, the survey is... incomplete.

I guess this wasn't adopted. It's been almost two years. I'm pretty
sure that if we're able to search back through wp-hackers records we
would see this plugin mentioned, so it's not as if it was obscure.

Is it premature to say "I told you so" right now, or should I wait a
Incidentally, it struck me that someone could write an interop
functions.php that let you drop theme files from another system (say,
MT) into a theme directory, and then use magic to convert the MT theme
tags into WP PHP templates on demand.
