 [attachment:"4039.diff"] is an implementation of this, however..

 Blocking this doesn't actually fix the problem, the uploader has most
 likely already changed the Theme Name (as they were blocked on uploading,
 and directed them to change it) and is now attempting to upload with a
 changed Name, but not URI.

 All this change will do, is prompt them to change the Theme URI too, and
 then upload into the review queues with even less data available to say
 "This is a duplicate".

 I'm not against implementing this, but as part of it, I think we need to
 reconsider the text displayed when it fails the `Theme Name in use by
 another author` too.

 Ideally, failing either that check, or this check, would display an even
 firmer "Are you sure you're in the right place?" notice, but I'm not sure
 on the wording right now.
