Selecting Network Themes & Appearance selection

Description

In 'Super Admin > Themes' there is

a) no way to enable all themes, e.g. as there is to Posts > Select Title.

Additionally, by default all themes are disabled. This makes it tiresome for admins of MS sites to enable new themes when setting up a blog farm with a lot of themes (must manual click each one). At the very least, there is a strong need for an "enable all themes" option.

b) there is no way to sort themes, e.g. enable/disabled (like plugins), find newly added ones from amongst old themes, tag or categorize.

Again, this makes it tiresome for admins of MS sites to find and enable new themes. The above would also fix this.

c) there is no way to search for a specific themes, e.g. by name, by feature, by tag, date added etc.

i) This latter issue also arises in the users' Appearance > Manage Themes pane.

The 3 column, widely spaced design might be wonderful for sites where there are just a few themes but in farms where they are many, it makes finding and choosing tiresome.

ii) Specific to this, when testing themes, Manage Themes defaults to returning to the very first page of themes making finding where one was tiresome. It should default to which ever page of themes was being looked at.

iii) Only the first three page plus last page is shown, this could easily be replaced with a list, dropdown or scroll showing all pages of themes.

d) One suggest to resolving and improving this area could be to adopt a simple slideshow type display or one similar to Apple's Cover Flow.

e) It seems that many of the code components to improve this area already exist in the code, e.g. selecting, tagging, categorizing, gallery display, an many of the features of the post and page admin pages could be applied to improve it, e,g, the "quick edit, view, move to trash" type options.

f) Indeed, it would make more sense from a UI point of view to have the Appearance page follow the models of the Post and Pages page with smaller thumbnails.

And why are the PNGs thumbs all so large in size!?!
