Hey, is it that has a different header image on each page?

This lead me to an idea: I think it'd be awesome if the header loaded a random image each time a page loaded.

Would someone be willing to add this to the theme options so that you can added any number of images (perhaps with a limit, or not) so that the theme will choose randomly from this pool of images so that the user will see cool random photos.

In my case, since it's a skateboarding site, i'd having a whole bunch of different skatebaord related photos for users to feast their eyes on, etc.

Twenty Ten uses the post thumbnail of the post, if the thumbnail is large enough.

You should create a child theme that exposes random images and release it. Or maybe a plugin that allows multiple custom header images on rotation. I don't think we would do this for Twenty Ten; it has been shipped and will likely not have any drastic changes to its base functionality such as this.

2010 is meant to be a simple blog theme that takes advantage of core features, not a framework by itself. This functionality sounds cool, but is plugin territory. If you were suggesting a core feature to randomize header images rather than a theme change, that would be a different feature request, but still probably plugin territory.

Note to @trusktr: "Major" severity is reserved for things that are broken. This is a new feature request, with normal or minor severity.
