Hm, no, you're right.  Which is very strange, since -- given some
discussions from the past week or so -- the Artwork Project folks are
well aware of the need for scalability in the theme XML.  They may be

The illustrious Mr. Keating may have to make the call on this, but I
think it should block the final release.
