This should be fixed. However, it'll break (I think) the other currently
uploaded themes, so it's not completely trivial.

This should be 3 themes, so the user can see and download the one he
wants. There will be some duplication if he installs all 3, but I think
this is preferable.

This should be fixed.

Question to figure out who's to blame: Is it checkwps complaining about
this, or the theme site?

It is. Maybe the error message is confusing (I don't remember), but
10-Nimbus.fnt is indeed included in the font pack, and so we don't want
themes containing copies of it (which could lead to overwriting a fixed
version in the font pack with an outdated version from a theme).

If the error message is not clear, it should be fixed.
