    33But seriously this would be perfect.  To try to make my plugin admin screens looks WP-like I end up finding an existing admin screen that has the effect I'm looking for, such as the posts list for a table, then view that in a browser, copy the source into an HTML editor and try to clean out the header, footer, menu, then rename the columns and add the content, the code ends up looking like a frenkenstein mess but I get a WP-like layout at least.  I would really like this but IMO this would literally take rewriting the entire admin interface.  Start with developing the API framework then recreate each and every admin page using the framework.  Much needed though IMO.

     5Perhaps the best way to do this is to first get a group together to code up the API framework then when thats finished add it to core then over the next release cycle to two redo admin pages to then work off the API then after a few releases we could have a nice good setup.
