Yes, we have a palette in the works. I should have installable versions done 
sometime soon. If anyone is interested in helping make a gimp palette please 
let me know.

I represent Canonical's wishes (be them from Mark or whoever). At this time I 
plan on using a very different theme in Intrepid. If that should change the 
list will be the first to know.

Apparently you missed out on the discussion as to "the motivation behind why 
we create themes". Let me wrap it up in a couple of sentences:

We create themes because we have a good, strong vision which we want to 
express. That is what the theme teams should be about. Which part(s) of that 
goes in the default artwork should be secondary (or perhaps even 
third-ary :p)
