>From a usability stand point I can't stand a separate admin area.  I tried really hard to like it and had four people whose sites I run try it.  They all said that being pulled out of their site was a jolt.  With the migration of more of the 'set once a forget it' settings to the admin settings link, stuff iis even easier to find then ever.  With roles determining what can be seen, those with limited roles see what they can see within the context of the sites theme without the jolt of going to what seems to be a completely different site.
