I don't think that is a good idea. I think it's one of those features that
sets Wordpress apart from, say, Drupal and that makes Wordpress much more
The standardized look 'n' feel of the admin is one of the reasons I really
like Wordpress. It just works, and it makes sense that a well-designed admin
interface doesn't need themes.
What I would like is the ability to show/hide certain panels, have more
flexibility in how custom fields are integrated (without resorting to a
plugin), etc. But the basic layout and functionality of the admin does not
need theming, imho.
