Ber's "sections" module lets you assign a completely different theme
to different areas of the site. This is one existing way to have a
completely separate theme for the "admin" part of the site.

Admin.module doesn't do anything today. Let's get rid of it, and let
(future) control panel solutions thrive on their own merits.
