Additional information -- Prior to 3.0, we used switch_themes to control the
Appearance submenus such as widgets. We introduced a new capability called
edit_theme_options, that way someone could edit these theme options (menus
included) without being able to necessarily switch the theme (or,
hypothetically, vice versa). You may wish to use that capability in lieu of
manage_options, though in your case it probably doesn't matter.
