How to set up beamer in a document so that frame titles are centered? Most of the themes seem to use left aligned frame titles.

Unfortunately this solution does not work well with some themes, like Rochester, which I use with the option height=\baselineskip. In this case the title frame height is completely ignored. – Romildo Mar 9 '12 at 19:15
@Romildo: in this case, simply add \addtobeamertemplate{frametitle}{\vspace{-1.6\baselineskip}} to my solution. – Gonzalo Medina Mar 9 '12 at 22:10
