"Under Maintenance" Page

There should be a toggle (maybe in options) to allow for WP to go into "maintenance mode", say when template edits are being done. I know this can kinda-sorta be done with the theme change plugins, but there should be something a little more reliable. Sort of like's server maintenance page.

This could be set to match sites in a maintenance.php template file.

It would just make things a lot easier for template authors to make live changes without having people peek in too early.

Is this not really a job for a plugin?

There are a number of maintenance mode plugins which allow backend access while disabling access to the front end.

To support theme changes any code would have to allow some users to still get the real site while everyone else gets the maintenance page.
