On-disk theme products can be quite verbose, so we employ a program to generate the skeleton of ours. We'll then make a few clean-ups before moving on to making a visual impact.
To generate the empty shell of a theme, we'll use a code generation tool called
paster. A set of Zope- and Plone-specific code snippets, called

binfolder in your buildout. If
pasteris in there, you're done; skip to the next section. If not, read on.
