That's because you only made a quarter of a theme =P

That is something of a point though...
But I still think separate admin/editor themes are bad for usability, even if
they fix current usability problems caused by layout issues. Swings,
roundabouts, all that.

Sounds like Adrian once again has the boat planned, if not built.
I suspect the best solution in usability terms would be something more like a
desktop application, with pop-ups (maybe iframes) and all sorts of other stuff
when you want to edit or make admin changes, but with current technologies doing
that sort of stuff means supporting a narrow set of browsers.
