Is there going to be a new default theme in WordPress 2.1? I remember some
discussion back in August and September but since then, nothing.

Not in 2.1, but maybe after that we'll include a new theme in addition to Kubrick. I think 2.2 will emphasize a lot of theme improvements.

(Thinking aloud perhaps:) I wonder how you choose to handle theme changes in upgrades. With so many people already (or /still/) using Kubrick you can't just drop it. Also, if changing default themes, there ought to be some check during upgrade, ensuring that the current theme is not superceded, overridden, or replaced. This could get slightly messy because people don't like noticeable and unwanted changes, even if a few clicks revert back to old settings (e.g. Dapper->Edgy, XP->Vista).
