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.

Thanks for the heads-up! By default, who gets access to the
"edit_theme_options" capability -- is that a site administrator only
or do editors have that as well?
