[theme-reviewers] Theme options page

PHP functions such as file_get_contents()/fread()/fwrite()/etc. are
prohibited. (They won't even pass the uploader script.)

Everything in the Theme needs to be self-contained. Themes should never
rely on an external resource that can be bundled with the Theme. An
external "news" page would not be an appropriate exception.

Pulling in an RSS feed (such as for a dashboard Widget), if implemented
properly and used judiciously, is a viable option.
