I am in agreement with Adrian.  I don't really care if the admin areas are 
themed differently or the same as the rest of the site.  I just want the admin 
areas to be usuable.  In most themes, they are difficult or impossible to use 
--  tables regularly blow up the page, admin links are behind menus where they 
cannot be clicked, etc.

I already have to have an "admin" theme:  That is, I have to install, enable 
and configure 2 themes for my site.  The first is the styled theme I want all 
visitors to see.  The second is the one where the admins can actually do 
something because they cannot in the first theme which is unusable in the 
admin sections.
