What, you don't like people objecting ages after the discussion has
started, and days after it has concluded? I'm shocked, shocked! :)

Anyway, more seriously, Shaun, Elijah, since you seem to both be
owning the issue- I can help you chase down people, but I'd recommend
that you two or someone else you persuade:

* figure out exactly what technical things need to be done here
* filie a bug on each of them
* mark them all 2.12 showstoppers (which I will start screaming about shortly)

and doing that ASAP. I tend to agree that doc shooting with the new
theme should occur regardless of whether or not all those bugs are
totally finished, but in the meantime, we can't let that get in the
way of getting the technical stuff, you know, done. Wishing doesn't
make it so and all that ;)
