A theme's functions.php is always loaded, even for the admin.  That's 
because some themes need it for creating preference pages.  Ideally, 
themes would load the JS only when their preference page is loaded. 
Doing this is a bit awkward in 2.0, but 2.1 makes it much easier with 
some new hooks.  Here's some sample code:

function theme_mod_init() {
	$page = add_theme_page("Custom Image Header", "Custom Image Header", 
'edit_themes', basename(__FILE__), 'theme_mod_page');

	add_action("admin_print_scripts-$page", 'theme_mod_js_inc');
add_action('admin_menu', 'theme_mod_init');

function theme_mod_js_inc() {
