The reviewer was right in this case. The Theme *does* implement custom
header and custom background, but uses a *custom* implementation, rather
than supporting the core implementation.

As Amy suggested, though, it would probably be best for review-specific
comments to be left in-ticket, for posterity and for future reference for
the Theme in question.
