Probably. But don't count on it happening in 4.0. You most likely will 
want to adjust your theme settings (style, windeco if relevant) if you 
are on a slow connection, as it is unlikely the defaults will be tuned 
for bandwidth rather than "prettiness". Oxygen in particular is likely 
to be a serious pig in its default configuration, although I hope we 
will be able to provide some knobs for people that really want to use
