Cool Roller Theme.

I spotted a new Roller theme this morning at PSQuad's Corner. I found this via Dave's post, whic mentions that some people are not happy with Roller. For not liking Roller, it seems that Pat has put some time into customizing it - or is this a theme that provides? The CSS even validates! Too bad the html doesn't.
