Agreed. The issue is random ass themes that have large tables in
admin view. So...file bugs against the themes, and/or ship those
specific themes with an "admin theme". Make a handbook page on
theming that says "if you are going to do fancy fixed width themes,
we suggest you use an admin theme and process X (e.g. sections, built
into page.tpl.php, whatever) to handle the admin side". Actually, I'd
love to see the CivicSpace admin theme as a *separate* theme
project....then people could work with that plus sections.
About a billion tasks are "do once" tasks that are done ONLY by site
admins. Once. And install profiles will mean there are even LESS do
once things that people touch.
