My VoodooPress site is a twentyten child theme. Has some pretty cool functions going on behind the scenes. But pretty much every post on the site is about things to do with a twenty ten child theme. For instance, the things you ask about:

http://wpweaver.info/themes/weaver/ - this theme has push button customizations for twentyten as well as a bunch of child themes.

This site has a large list of child themes for Twenty Ten http://zeaks.org/category/twenty-ten-child-themes/ There's also a basic child theme with some features built in, layouts, slider, header options etc http://zeaks.org/twentyten-options-theme-1-5-download/
Weaver is also very nice, but it's not a child theme anymore.
