[drupal-devel] New themeable function for buttons?

I just want it to be consistent. If we are forced to use buttons  
somewhere, because there is no other way, then so be it. But please  
let it be consistent, and not as we see in the screenshot underneath.  
I think this is a really bad thing. It doesn't look right and doesn't  
feel right.

Some improvements would be:
- if both actions 'Delete' and 'Cancel' would be buttons;
- if the buttons would be right aligned (every good OS does that);
- if the breadcrumbs were a little more descriptive and reflect the  
real path;

So, +1 on having them both buttons. On the confirmation api (we  
should patch that again), and in any other section of drupal..

But, no matter what we do, we have to keep it consistent to get  
drupal on a higher level of usability and userfriendlyness!

Kind regards,
