#12839 new enhancement

Should sandbox themes on activate to prevent fatal errors

I've just made a child theme of TwentyTen by copying the folder over, renaming, and adding a Template: header to the style.css file.

Upon activation, I've been thrown to a page with a fatal error due to redefining a twentyten function.

Ideally, theme activations should be passed through a sandbox style activation the same as plugins.
