Hello Ryan,

It hasn't been done because the demand hasn't been there (high enough demand). 
I would never use ready made templates, and I wouldn't advice a newbie to 
use it. If you are going to learn TYPO3 it's necessary to learn the fundamentals 
of typoscript. Using a ready made template with Page TS, User TS, constant 
and setup wouldn't learn you typoscript. And not learning the basics of typoscript 
will get you in trouble later on.

And there are templates out there, search.

Use a newsreader!! news.netfielders.de. To me it's easier than any BB. Can 
have the mailinglists with me offline.

Webempowered Church has TV templates. But with TV you can use any free HTML 
and XHTML template out there.
