The Related programs and applications has links to a mere six services and tools almost exclusively for theming. I question the value of such a minimal list, especially with its significant quality issues. At best, it's in the wrong handbook (developer's instead of themer's), but I think it might be better removed altogether. I think maintaining a catalog of development tools in general is beyond the scope of the handbooks.
