Ooh!  That would be great--especially if it's coming from someone who 
actually went through the process to get it working (so, would be much 
better than anything I'd write up).  Thanks.

Yeah, at least for now.  :)  And if we need to, we can always add tips, 
later, for things like cloning/pulling/merging.

FWIW, I hope to move Terra, MythCenter, and MythCenter-wide to the 
MythTV-Themes project on github after 0.26 is released (actually, I 
hoped to do it during 0.26 development, but got too busy with work).  At 
that point, all themes will be "external" (whether in MythTV-Themes or 
some other repo--such as an SVN or Google Code repo or whatever), so 
could be modified with similar approaches, just using whatever tools are 
appropriate for the repo.
