[wp-hackers] CSS backwards compatibility in Admin

Hi all --
I've noted that in the Admin for 2.7, the submit buttons on Admin
pages now have a class="button-primary" assigned.
The visual difference is that with this class, the button is a medium
blue color, and without it (presumably for "secondary" buttons) the
color is a faded gray.
For the sake of both a) cleaner code, and b) backwards compatibility
with plugins, shouldn't this be reversed?
That is, buttons should be blue by default, and IF there is a
class="button-secondary" then it is the faded gray? Surely the
secondary buttons are the special case here, as most forms have a
single, primary, button.
Not a major thing, but again one more silly little thing for plugin
authors to have to go back in and change to make their plugins match
the current look of admin. When making these changes, it's good to
keep in mind what happens to existing code.
