Yo, Beeber, howzit? (Thats what people say here in Hawaii, 'howzit'). :)

Am I correct in thinking that you have at least some experience in web

Because if so, are you aware of any simple, lightweight and easily
theme-able responsive libraries/frameworks?

Emphasis on simple & lightweight, theming less important for now.  Not
that I care about it much myself, but if the experience isn't
theme-able, it may be viewed as somehow either unfinished/not ready or
perhaps worse unsophisticated enough.  *sigh*

Your right in noticing that these types of projects rarely mention UI/UX
in real detail -- it is hard, boring sometimes counterintuitive,
nitpicking work.

More importantly, I'm not sure people who create the functionality even
*should* design the UI -- they are way to close to it, understand it all
in their minds, and thus can't really objectively evaluate key UI
metrics like 'discoverability', flow, etc.
