The problem I have isn't really with what is admin or not, or making
admin sections look special...

The problem I'm normally confronted with is pages in the admin/* that 
nearly unusable due to a theme. So I'm not really concerned with what is
or isn't the admin section... I just want my log section/access control
page to be readable/usable.

Is there any particular reason you client thinks he needs a different
theme for when he's editing a node... seems pretty silly to me,
especially considering its the same form that is used to add a node.
