Ok... but I thought one of the big pushes for the admin theme camp is  
that there would be one true admin theme to rule them all... so that  
administration of a drupal site was uniform , and thus much easier to  
document (i.e. where to click, etc) ... then that information can be  
reliably written in docs (and books) without a "theme depenedent"  

or am i missing something 'cause I'm not a usability guy?
