So what doe you mean with an 'all or nothing decision'?  What exactly  
does that mean in terms of what pages to theme differently?

If I give you 2 months to think about this problem, will you be able  
to come up with a perfect solution?  No, you won't.  There is no  
perfect solution.  Due to Drupal's highly dynamic nature, the  
distinction between user-mode and admin-mode will remain blurry,  
regardless of the regex you throw at this.  That, and it is often a  
matter of preference.
