I think many websites tend to have the following somewhere in their  
site: front end users, some sort of way to display many photos, a  
news engine, a newsletter engine. Why not make a downloadable version  
of Typo3 that includes these and the corresponding page structure  
right out of the box?

I have created a few (5-6) small sites based on Typo3 for small  
businesses, non-profits, and clubs. For many of them, I do not need a  
custom made theme/template for the site, but I do need it to look  
professional and stylish. It would be great if I could browse through  
(or have my client) and select the one they feel fits their business.
