[theme-reviewers] What/Why Is This in a Footer Copyright Statement?

HTTP_HOST is what the client/user asked for as the target host of that

So for most sites, it would return the _requested domain name_ from the url.

So, a page at http://www.yourdomain.com/about-us would return:

Copyright 2010 yourdomain.com

(it is stripping out the first 4 chars, assuming the domain starts with
www., and that part should be stripped off.)

I bet it works _perfectly_ on the site(s) it was created for.
