Yes, it's definitely possible and AFAIK not terribly onerous except that 
there's a few files to edit and apparently it's easy to miss one.  If 
you've got someone who's a bit of a wiz with CSS, you can do some very 
impressive stuff just by adding a stylesheet link into the templates.  I 
*know* I've seen some very slick themed archives but I apparently don't 
have the bookmarks anymore.  Anyone who did that want to brag?
