[ubuntu-art] Where's the official proposed theme idea?

I also go by "Ken #2" or "Ken B"; but if another Ken whose last name is
like, "Bernard" or something, I'll go by "Ken C" or with my last initial
"Ken V". But not "W", that's taken. Hope that clears things up. :P

But yes, Ken is right (No the other Ken, wait, no, yes, no... "Mr.Wimer");
This isn't by any means or stretch the official theme, even though a few
websites have promoted it as such. It's just a concept theme.

With all that in mind, I'm updating the theme wiki for 3.3, and it should be
up by the time everyone figures out what to call me.

 -- Ken ("A", "B", "C" or "V" but not "W")
