And why isn't that DRY with the matching /../../../themes code on the production 

BTW, as a meta-answer, I implemented this algorithm for a test once...

  for each theme in themes/*
    render the theme
    assert the theme passes Tidy validation
    assert all the a hrefs point somewhere
    assert every image appears in public/images

Hours of fun! If you have two many themes, you can pick a random assortment for 
each integration test run...
