[theme-reviewers] Questions on my first review

Hi Otto,
The theme in question is mine; only issue it turns out after re-reading all
the tips here is the base_64 encoding. I customized a  very popular and
very user-friendly framework -the Slightly Modified Options Framework. Very
big themes use it.
That line, "100% safe - ignore theme check nag", which I know got you :-)
was added by the Framework author. I took his word for it...seeing as the
framework is used everywhere. I figured several themes in the repository
already use it. I'm very aware of the base64 encoding rule;

I've removed the option altogether; the encoding was being used to allow
users import/export/transfer their settings. Will find another way of doing
it...and will make changes to the framework repository so hopefully, the
author can clean that up.
I've re-uploaded the theme: http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12964.
Springer, if you can, please take a look at it again. (Seeing as you've
already downloaded it and started the review :-) )

The credit link leads to my page: http:kakoma.ug, which I'm upgrading right
now. I can put something else if the current 'under construction' page is
an issue

Oh, and the 'read me', as Springer can attest, contains proper credits
