Well yes, but that's not really the point. Otherwise we'd all be dumping our
CSS into the head, but we don't, we use external files instead so that they
can be cached across the entire site and to separate them from the content.

What file-writing PHP functions are needed that are banned? I have a theme
which does this and it passes the theme checker plugin just fine. I'd been
working on the assumption that anything not blocked by the theme checker
plugin was acceptable on the repository.
