Hmmm, now that I think about it, I agree.  Users/Admins who want a fast
theme that runs well over a network will most likely know what they're
doing, or be capable of finding out how to change the default theme for
their users.  I imagine that these users are in the minority, so I think
that the networkability of a theme shouldn't be taken into too much
consideration for the default theme.  That said, I prefer the simple new
default theme over more compilcated ones (though I would like to have
scrollbar arrows going both directions on boths sides of the scrollbar).

Though one should also take into consideration the usability of the
theme.  I can see how the Crux theme would be a bit difficult to read
menu selections with for some people.
