Feature requests for Network theme

Hi all,

Had a quick play with the Network theme today and wanted to put in a few feature requests please!

1) Pull more than one post per blog in the network. This seems to be something a lot of people ask about so I would like to add my voice to this! Can we please have a setting in the, umm, settings that allows us to define how many posts per blog to pull.

2)Post Excerpts. It would be nice to have the post excerpts also pulled from the network posts to give the readers a taster of the post without them having to visit the post to find out.

3) Optional widget column on home page.

I have already added point 1 and 3 manually (and 2 if we can get it working) but we don’t want to have to be manually applying these changes each time the theme is updated.
