major overhaul of default-theme
Hi fellow devs,

I added a theme called "default-v2" to the SVN. It is a major overhaul of the "default" theme.

It would be nice to get some feedback from you who run a test machine with the current SVN version (I just pushed the rc1 of default-v2 a few minutes ago).
Let me know how it performs and if there are any problems with it.

I added a poll about your wishes for the future of the "default" theme

Looks nice and works without problems on my server.

May you add a short description what has been changed. The visual change that I noticed were the rounded corners and I guess you did a lot of cleanup in the html and css files?
