Cache current theme in options

get_theme_mod() calls get_current_theme() which in turn calls get_themes(). get_themes() scans and parses all themes. This means that themes that call get_theme_mod() scan and parse all themes on every page load. This includes themes that use the custom image header library. Profiling on my testbed revealed that 10% of the load time for the front page was due to get_theme_mod() and friends. Saving the current theme in options eliminates the need to rescan themes on every load.
