Even better - I'd missed that function. We are actually upgrading to 3.0 - part of the reason for these changes is to make the overall installation more upgrade-safe and keep the customizations in plugins and/or themes as appropriate.

What I meant was, no need for admin_init modifications or anything of the
sort. Check out register_theme_directory(). So you could simply have a
plugin that calls register_theme_directory( WP_CONTENT_DIR .
'/network-themes/' . $current_site->site_id ); and you'd be good to go.
Also, I'd upgrade to 3.0 when you can (perhaps with 3.0.1), there's a decent
number of MU improvements and bug fixes that went into that release.
