if i remember correctly this was just one of the first steps to make it 
ikiwiki conform, and cannot be seen as a sign for a correct ikiwik 
implementation of a theme.

That's propably right. But in order to be sure the theme really looks 
like intended you need to work on a running ikiwiki instance. I tried 
but failed to set something up on my machine, also there is the problem 
of working on anything together if it just runs on a local machine.

if i had access to any running ikiwiki installation and was free to mess 
around i would try to build that theme, mail it to the admins and just 
let them activate it.
Of course we should know what version is running and what dependencies 
there *may* exist or whatever...
