Ok I found some issues and committed some small patches. Will now make a pause and see if that was all right. The #drupal-twig rooms at irc seems to be off. I am having an Twig_Error_Syntax: The function "theme" does not exist in "core/themes/stark/templates/theme.inc/table.html.twig" at line 72 in Twig_Node_Expression_Function->compile() (line 28 of E:\wamp\www\drupal_8_twig_sandbox\core\vendor\twig\twig\lib\Twig\Node\Expression\Function.php). and currently can't get hold on anybody for clarification. Will need to connect somehow.
