I'll miss the glass-wide theme for sure.  Maybe at some point (though
I can't imagine it happening any time soon) I'll see what I can learn
about the new ui themes and see if I can take a stab at it.

However, one thing always confused me regarding theme development and
testing:  How does someone do this if they're not running all the
various plugins?  I don't use anything but mythvideo and have no
intention of running anything more.  Is it even possible under those
circumstances?  I'd think it wouldn't be.
