And, I'll go ahead and mention:

Note, also, you can easily replace the backgrounds (randomly chosen from
the Backgrounds directory) with your own custom pictures, and the clean
design means it actually looks good...  It's a great theme for all the
photographers out there.

You can (but don't need to) update qtlook.txt to no longer reference
tendrils1.png.  (If you don't, startup and some of the non-themed pages
may have a dark grey/black background.)
