BTW, feel free to ignore this post:
The Gespaa theme can now also be found at WP-Themes.org. For now, I've only added the one-column version.
The main benefit to me is that I have a remotely hosted SCM service. I've been maintaining a local subversion repository for development purposes which I'll continue doing for various reasons. However, any deployable changes (major and minor) will be also be tracked in the SVN repository on WP-Themes.
