I agree with you. Background for me writing my manage.module was that 
really sections.module didn't do anything for me and I had to deliver a 
separate management theme to a client.

After reading your above post,  I debugged my problem and found that 
setting $custom_theme in hook_menu() is too late in my setting. Probably 
(I haven't analyzed this further), some other module initializes the 
theme system before.

To me this seems like a general problem. I have therefore created a 
patch to sections.module at http://drupal.org/node/47788 which sets 
$custom_theme in a new hook_init(). Now your sections.module works for 
me nicely and I will use it.
