I have two questions really:

1) Do you think there is a big call for WordPress MU-specific themes? By that I mean layouts specifically tailored to a multiple blog environment with built in MU-specific functions such as global posts, a latest blog list, custom sign up pages etc, which an ordinary WordPress Community theme can’t offer.

2) Would the review staff be able to test them out, since I assume they only test templates in a non-MU environment.

Thanks.

There will be a big call for Buddypress themes once WP & WP-MU integrate. The other I am unsure.

Even though its a relatively young MU add on, definitely wouldn’t be a bad idea to consider adding them. I would think BP themes would need to be in the $50-75 range to make it worth while, as the sales volume wouldn’t be nearly what it is for standard WP themes.

But like Abfab said once WP and WPMU merge the demand will surely increase.
