Not yet.  But we'd like such a tool.  One way to do that would be via an
API... another way would be to use a script that "ties into" mediagoblin
as an actual python import script.

We don't have theming yet, but it's a feature we'd like to have.

In the meanwhile there's a really terrible hack where you can "override"
templates in mediagoblin[_local].ini.  See the line:

## Uncomment this to put some user-overriding templates here
#local_templates = %(here)s/user_dev/templates/

You can then use that directory to copy things from the
mediagoblin/templates/ directory, and "override" the templates by using
the ones in the ./user_dev/templates/ directory instead.  So,
./user_dev/templates/mediagoblin/base.html would override the normal
mediagoblin file.  That's a terrible hack, but you could use it in the
meanwhile... and it'll be hard to maintain.  In the long term, we need
real theming.
