In Drupal 6, we were working around bugs/limitations of Drupal core so we had all sub-themes call zen_theme() from inside their hook_theme() implementations. This allowed Zen to do some work at theme registry build time.

In Drupal 7, we no longer need to do any of this hard-work. Its always been an awkward piece of code. Let's simplify and remove it. Since STARTERKIT_theme() would then be empty, let's remove it too.

Fixed. http://drupal.org/cvs?commit=502258

Since, there is no longer a hook_theme() placeholder in STARTERKIT's template.php, we should add some docs to mention hook_theme().

Which is a good thing since Zen 2.x also lacks the documentation.
I will work on this right now.
