Hmmm...good idea...sounds like an interesting project
I don't know what version that is but the newer, I suppose more unstable versions, have a much fresher looking appearance right off the bat. In addition to a much improved kickass admin section.
Customization wise I'd change at least the standard images, change the header color to the background color, take out that unneccessary icon on the top left, and unless you're going to make all of your images on transparent backgrounds, stick with the white background. Just suggestions...I think you'd get better offers that way. :p
