Incredibly late reply on this, but I'd rather create_function() be banned
from themes. Arbitrary PHP is insecure -- especially user-inputted PHP --
and, keep in mind, it would make the theme insecure for multisite.
create_function() is just as dangerous as eval() or assert() or any other
arbitrary execution device, whether used incorrectly or maliciously.
