How many themes should YaBB "Next" Edition versions ship with?
2, 3, 5, or more???
What would be the ideal choices?
What kid of a mix should it be?
What's the downside of shipping more than say 2 or 3?

A humble suggestion regarding bug fixes.
No software is perfect and 2.5.2 undoubtedly has as yet undiscovered bugs. My suggestion - when a bug is found and there's a working bug-fix, let's use Board-Mod to help get it installed.
