[theme-reviewers] Theme Unit Test Data: Gallery Columns

Part of me thinks it should be a requirement.  WordPress already handles 
styles for 1 - 10 columns (and more) by default.  If a theme is 
overwriting this with custom styles or removing the inline <style> WP 
adds, they need to handle this on their own.  That's where the biggest 
problem is -- themes overwriting this but not handling anything other 
than 3 columns.

With that said, WP's handling of this is crap.  I've never designed a 
theme where it doesn't break with the default WP styles.  Of course, I 
always roll my own handling of this anyway.
