Just an FYI on tarski theme, the github current version 2.7.1 has those 
deprecated and notices fixed as requested.

It appears that the developer just hasn't uploaded the latest version to the 

Everything else is pretty much 'recommended' more or less anyways.

Although I setup my own github fork of it at 
http://github.com/Frumph/tarski/commits/master modifying it to upgrade it to 
the latest wordpress revision.

That was what, an hour?  Still need to do the comment_form() stuff but thats 
about it to make it up to date with theme review/code standards of wordpress 
3.0, i'll offer it up to the dev to see if he wants it when i'm done.
