We can't really do this because the vforg theme has a bunch of hard-coded stuff in it. It's not a generic theme.
There's also a truth that we can get away with a more simple theme (old one included) because we have such a good logo. If you take a simple theme and put a good banner or logo on it then it transforms the site. I think this is something that most regular users don't see. And as a corollary to this we can't really include a logo in a theme so it's a task left to the forum owner.
Can I jump in here? I agree a little with Todd, if there's hardcoded stuff, we can't have a copy/paste old theme as that goodie. But let's see what we really need? Actually, we need the new vf.org theme, but then with a little @422 'touch' (if you please, @422). Spice it up with a little 'Vanilla-touch' and make it left-column, or right-column or both (optional), fluid and we're happy for a while (if you code in some exciting comments in the .css file that we can learn from).Basically a theme that you can use as a base for all new themes, with comments that makes us learn and a theme that rocks, all-in-1! (just my opinion)
