I think this is what is holding back most other people on the list as well....
digitect has a decent mockup of some color ideas already.....maybe he can spend
a little time working on it to add in his color suggestions?

In a couple days I'll try and do the same, as time allows.

I think a good idea is what digitect mentioned earlier: establishing a set of
colors to work with, and then have each subsite be a different arrangement of
those colors.  It would let each section have its own identity, while being
easily associated with the umbrella.  That gives us a lot of leeway 
for each section. Some common elements (like text) should be consistent 
throughout, of course.
