Admin Options Panel Framework

Forgive me if there has been another request. I did search the site and didn't find anything. But I have been looking for a solution for an extensive admin panel that I can use for my projects. I know that I should create my own, but I also know that WPMU's coding abilities far surpass mine. I think many developers would find a plugin like this useful. In addition, maybe a "how to" guide to add other options for specific instances.

I know it's tough to create something that is used differently every time, because no two themes are exactly alike, but maybe creating some for of framework to build on for us less edumacated folk!

Thanks for considering!
