 7157.patch contains my suggestions for the UI to switch template packs.

 It's actually doing a bit more.. So i'll explain with screenshots:


 This is how the UI will look by default. As we only have one template pack
 in core. So i thought to "ease" BP Nouveau testing we could let users
 upload new template pack. When you click on the upload button, you get a
 form to upload and install a zip archive of a Template Pack.


 I've discovered that Using the file system in WordPress requires the same
 credentials wherever you want to unzip a file. I thought it was not
 requesting any credentials in `uploads` for instance, and it's actually
 the same than unzipping into `/wp-content/bp-templates`.

 I wasn't able to test completely the "credential" form WordPress is
 outputting when FTP username and password are required. So i choose to
 display an error message to inform the user he needs to use FTP. If you
 can directly upload new plugins, then it should work for Template Packs.

 Once installed, you get:
 From there, you can delete the uploaded template packs, activate the one
 of your choice and even preview a Template Pack before activating it.
