Previous versions of Pyplate used the same theme for the front end of a web site and the back end, which meant that developing new themes was time consuming. Each theme had to work for the admin area as well as the rest of the site. Having a standard admin theme means that new themes only need to work for the front end, and don’t need to be tested with the admin area.
