I fully agree with all of you when you say "sections module is not core, thus 
wont solve the problem"

I know that any non-core module should never be put forward as "the" solution,
but in this case i a confident it /is/ the solution. Why?

We really (as in : no doubt about it) have a problem in definning what is 
admin and what is not. A quick investigation on my 8 public drupal sites gave 
me the figures:
* 4 use anything below /admin as admin
* 4 use one or more pages below /admin as public pages
* 6 use */edit pages as admin
* 2 use */edit as admin only

those are just eight. I am 100% confident that we will never find a good set 
of of *default* regexps for a n admin theme to be able to act as admin theme. 

Thus i tried to find a way to
* help users for certain sorts of sited to degfine an admin theme for their 
* still have flexibility.

I simply do not believe we will ever get to an agreement on what is admin and 
what is not. And i think we should actually never reach that agreement, 
because then we will have to cut on flexibility.
