    I'm interested in doing this as well. I'd like to have a basic site that I can install themes into as I create them and use a theme switcher plugin to view the different ones from the front end. However, getting all that fun content into the "Demo" would be a PITA unless there's a sql dump or something to that effect that someone knows of for all the demo-content. Anyone?

    save feed://wp-themes.com/?feed=rss2 to your desktop
    got to tools->import->RSS
    upload your rss file... ready!
    extra steps may be needed if you want to have the images on your own site.
