I never figured out the procedure to cache the theme images when
netboot'ing so each time it has to scale the theme images.  Like I
said, I was toying with it.  :)  The other thing I was hoping to do
was configure the MePO-wide Theme for Minimyth since it was not
bundled last I looked.  I use MePO-wide on my primary frontend and I'd
like the other frontend to have the same theme.
