Yup. That is what i meant. But I can think of (hardcoded) ways that do not 
make this as obvious. For example, shipping an admin theme inside a 
(civicspace) theme. Or for example, making this a more or less hardcoded 
thing in core. 
For this too, i see a few routes: An admin theme is just a theme like any 
other theme, only that it will be activated on certain places on your site. 
The other one is a theme('admin',$content) similar to theme('page'). 
the third route is a flag that becomes available to ,for example theme('page') 
somthing like $is_admin. Then it is completely up to the themer to do stuff.

I personally prefer that last part, but I am afraid it will make the process 
of creating a theme even harder.
