OK, but the timesheet module is an extension of node.module, and you're 
supposed to "return $form;" at the end of the "function 
timesheet_form(&$node)", not "return 
drupal_get_form('timesheet_entries', $form);".

However, doing the "return $form" means that the theme doesn't get 
called, and doing the "drupal_get_form" gives array errors.

I can't find a module that extends node that uses the themeing for node 
submission (despite quite a bit of grepping), although several use it 
for administration. If anyone can point one out to me, or where I'm 
going wrong, that would be great.
