I'm totally new to orchard so I guess this falls into Orchard for dummies bracket ... But how can I add widgets like Navigation in its default form and in its breadcrumbs form directly into theme? I know I can do it with zones and widgets, but that seems like an overkill for adding integral parts of the theme.

How is it overkill? What would it achieve to take something nice and dynamic and make it static? As a matter of facts, it used to be hard-coded in the theme, and moving it out has definitely been an improvement.
