I also like the idea, but please no color switching. There is indeed a
color switcher module for Drupal, but it may confuse visitors a lot, I
don't know any major website that would change color scheme on regular
The color module requires an implementation in the theme as well.  I never intend to implement such a feature.  I think that it's just there for initial setting up... not for cycling.

Most sites that do any regular changing seem to change the whole look... or the whole framework... SourceForge for example.  Their current site is a couple of months old now, a new one is overdue!  (So that they can break more sites which used old URLs which got broken by the new, better URL layout.)
Besides, it would require us to update also Wiki theme (a lot
of work) in order to keep it consistent with the homepage (we are not
moving Wiki to Drupal, right?).
Aren't we?  I was expecting that we would be.  It simplifies matters, and fits in with the plan of better organisation of the website, and makes information much easier to find (the main site doesn't really amount to anything at all - wiki.inkscape.org has all the content... search usability also comes to mind).

Discussion of exactly what is getting moved over and what is being implemented will be happening soon, after the main bit of the content is in.

My idea: lets put the image inside some kind of a box or frame, so
that even if it has completely different color scheme it would stay
consistent with the theme. Here is a sample (just started wokring on
it): http://drupalready.com/uploads/2009-08-15-225307_1280x800_scrot.png
What do you think?
With your theme it may work up there (the image you've got works very nicely while it's empty, but in my opinion almost any image inside it will distract), but with mine it wouldn't, because I haven't used so much space in that area of the header.  My plan is just to do an ordinary block, or something in the content area on the front page.
